Expats’ EHIC-Style Rights Guarantee a Step Closer

“For the 190,000 expat state pensioners who have chosen to live in the EU and those intending to retire to the EU, it will help by safeguarding reciprocal healthcare if there is no EU deal,” announced the government.

Baron O’Shaughnessy, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department of Health and Social Care commented, “Whether on holiday, working or retiring abroad, British people want to know they can access the same high quality healthcare that they enjoy in the NHS.

“This bill will allow us to implement new healthcare arrangements with other countries – in the EU and elsewhere – so that UK citizens can travel with confidence.”

Furthermore, the government has also reassured expats that it expects the existing EHIC scheme will survive “subject to an agreement with the EU”.

The bill was brought to parliament by Health Minister Jackie Doyle-Price. It lays the “legal basis to fund and implement reciprocal healthcare schemes and share necessary data after we leave the EU”.

Although the move has been criticised by some, it is undoubtedly a positive move as it represents an important contingency in the event of a no-deal.

Consolidate your Irish pension

Sunset over rocks on a beachOne of the best pieces of semi-financial advice I ever received was about buying clothes: buy good quality (obviously) and then have the garment altered to fit me specifically; sound financial and sartorial sense. Of course, this means going a little further than one might normally when buying a new outfit, but it’s a little extra that I think is more than justified in the end. Ready-to-wear clothes are great without doubt, but having something that fits you perfectly gives a continued feeling of satisfaction with every wear, it’s so worth it. There are parallels to be made in my professional life as well; it’s such a pleasure to be able to offer clients advice and products that are tailormade to their requirements and fit their circumstances perfectly.
