EU Home Affairs Sub-Committee

Brexit: reciprocal healthcare inquiry

Inquiry status open - accepting written submissions Contact us

Call for evidence published 8 September 2017; the deadline for submissions is Friday 24 November 2017.

Scope of inquiry

Healthcare entitlements under EU law are tied to social security benefits. The EU's rules-based social security coordination system is part of EU law on the free movement of persons. Its aims are to ensure portability of benefits across the EU, and equality of treatment with nationals within the host social security system. Benefits, including access to healthcare, are reciprocal and apply to UK citizens in the EU/EEA, and vice versa.

The inquiry will focus on the reciprocal healthcare implications of Brexit for UK citizens travelling, living and/or working in the rest of the EU, and for EU citizens travelling, living and/or working in the UK, in both the short and medium term.

The Committee will begin taking oral evidence for this inquiry in September.
