When you travel across the EU. You can take your EHIC to ensure you can receive medical care should you be taken ill. This is a reciprocal benefit of being EU citizens. It is particularly important for people with certain kinds…
of medical conditions which they have to declare on private travel insurance policies. For example I know someone who has a minor heart issue which doctors don’t recommend having surgery on at this stage but it means extremely hefty travel insurance premiums as if it were
if it were to suddenly require emergency treatment, it would be expensive and obviously there is a higher risk. Now when she travels across the EU, there is no such worry, the EHIC covers her for any emergency that may arise. This is not a unique situation.
There are many people for whom the EHIC has made holidays and travel available to them across the EU without fear or extremely expensive insurance policies.
If you retire to another EU country, as an EU citizen you are probably entitled to exportable benefits so you would use an S1 issued by the UK to ensure you are entitled to health benefits. It is by this mechanism that many ordinary people…
have been able to make a move overseas when they retire even on modest pensions. As a third country we will lose all such benefits. These are some of the benefits that have grown out of the Freedom of Movement of people. If you reject FOM then new arrangements will
have to be made. But therein lies the tragedy of removing our own rights to freedom of movement. The wealthy will always be able to move wherever they like. It just costs them more. FOM gave access to adventure and discovery and travel to all of us regardless of income.
I don’t know about you but this is just one benefit worth fighting for isn’t it? If you agree you can help us fight
