Social Security and Health Insurance after Brexit

On 29 January 2020, the European Parliament approved the Agreement on the withdrawal of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland from the European Union.

In the area of ​​social security and health insurance, this report means that the current European rules – Regulations on the coordination of social security systems No. 883/2004 and 987/2009, which, among other things, includes the principle of single insurance – will continue to apply , govern the use of the European Health Insurance Card and the provision of the necessary care based on it, the use of forms S1, E106, E109 and E121 for taking full care in the State of residence, or issuing of A1 Certificates for the determination of applicable legislation.

These rules apply for a transitional period – until the end of 2020. Thereafter, they will only apply to situations that arose before the end of 2020. The exact course of action after 2020 will also depend on whether and how the future EU-UK relations will be governed.
