NHS England has published guidance for providers charging for NHS services in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
If the UK leaves the EU with no deal, visitors from the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland who visit the UK will not be covered for healthcare in the same way they are now.
To be eligible for free NHS care, citizens who move to the UK after exit day must:
- meet the ordinarily resident test
- hold European Temporary Leave to Remain from the Home Office once freedom of movement ends
Check the NHS Visitor and Migrant Cost Recovery page regularly to see the latest guidance. Or set up an email alert subscription to receive all the latest updates from the Department of Health and Social Care.
NHS Improvement will continue to support NHS providers through their overseas visitors cost improvement programme.
