Updated guidance for primary care staff sets out how healthcare costs can be recovered for overseas visitors from the European Economic Area.

The advice covers aspects including ‘How you can help get money back into the NHS’, and ‘Accessing free NHS hospital treatment’, as well as patient referrals.

There is also information on documentation, including:

  • EHIC (formerly known as E111)
  • Provisional Replacement Certificate (PRC) for patients without an EHIC
  • S1 forms (formerly known as E106, E109, E120, E121)
  • S2 forms (formerly known as E112)

“Whether an EEA visitor is here on holiday, studying or moving here to retire, the cost of any NHS treatment they receive whilst here can often be reimbursed to the UK from their home country or, if they have moved here to retire, the country responsible for their continuing healthcare costs,” said the Department. The guidance sets out what to do if the patient has one of the documents outlined above.
