Commission Report on the operation of Directive 2011/24/EU on the application of patients’ rights in cross-border healthcare

Directive 2011/24/EU (hereafter ‘the Directive’) on the application of patients’ rights in cross-border healthcare came into force on 24 April 2011. It was due to be transposed by Member States by 25 October 2013. It clarifies the rights of patients to seek reimbursement for healthcare received in another Member State.

Article 20(1) of the Directive requires the Commission to ‘draw up a report on the operation of this Directive and submit it to the European Parliament and to the Council’ by 25 October 2015, and every three years thereafter. The report was to include, in particular, information on patient flows, financial dimensions of patient mobility, the implementation of Article 7(9) and Article 8, and on the functioning of the European reference networks and national contact points.
