Cyprus is among the member states that have enacted the directive’s provisions into national law and completed all the necessary steps for implementation.
The Directive covers all healthcare providers in the EU. Seeking prior authorization should be the exception rather than the rule.
All patients are entitled to properly reasoned decisions, and to appeal if they feel their rights have not been respected.
What to Know before You Go
Before you decide you must research your treatment options. Make sure you have a copy of your medical records, information on any medicines you are taking and any relevant test results. Check whether you will need a referral.
Make sure you know how much it will cost. Also how the authorities will cover that cost. Check any requirements for pre-treatment authorization.
Arrange to get a copy of your medical record. Is your prescription suitable for cross-border?
You may choose either public or private healthcare provider. The level of reimbursement will be up to the costs of that treatment in your local country. If the waiting time at home is unjustifiable you may even be entitled to a higher lever of coverage for your costs.
If you are to receive medical treatment in another EU country, you have the same rights as a citizen of that country, and your treatment will be subject to the same rules and standards.
