After quite some time without a formal meeting, AEBR Task Force Cross-Border Health was reactivated through an online event on Wednesday, 3 February, at 10:00 CET, where more than thirty participants started a first analysis of the situation of healthcare in border regions in times of pandemic.
We also presented the recent contract with the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Health and Food Safety (DG Santé) to provide an overview of cross-border patient mobility and the reimbursement system used for planned healthcare treatment in a number of border regions, so to complement the data on cross-border healthcare collected for the purposes of the CB Health Directive (2011/24/EU) and the Social Security Regulations (883/2004 and 987/2009).
