To ask Her Majesty's Government in (a) 2006—07, and (b) 2007—08, how much they paid to the Governments of (1) Latvia, (2) Poland, and (3) Lithuania, for healthcare for United Kingdom citizens in those countries; and how the figures were agreed.
The table below shows the actual cash payments the United Kingdom made to Latvia, Poland and Lithuania in 2006-07 and 2007-08. The payments represent reimbursement for healthcare provided to British citizens visiting, working or retired in these member states. Claims are submitted, determined and settled on the basis of EU Regulation (EC) 1408/71.
The figures in the table below reflect the fact that European economic area (EEA) medical costs are typically submitted by EEA member states one to three and sometimes more, years in arrears. Payments made in one year do not necessarily relate to claims for that year nor do they reflect the full value of claims for that year.
