Cross Border Healthcare

 

REMEMBER THAT CROSS BORDER DIRECTIVE DOES NOT NEGATE THE ADVISABILITY OF TAKING OUT TRAVEL INSURANCE.
Please ensure that you have taken out appropriate insurance while travelling abroad including outlining to your insurer that you are travelling abroad to obtain treatment.

The HSE operates a Cross-Border Healthcare Directive (CBD), for persons entitled to public patient healthcare in Ireland who are seeking to avail of that healthcare in another EU/EEA member state or Switzerland under Directive 201/24/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 9 March 2011 on the application of patient’s rights in cross-border healthcare, as per the procedures set out in governing EU Regulations and Directives and Irish legislation.

Remember - there IS NO CHARGE for applying to the HSE Cross Border Directive Department, it is a free public service. Anyone asking for money IS NOT CONNECTED with the HSE.
