Key document regulating patient’s rights in cross-border health care is Directive 2011/24/ЕU. This document provides some significant rights for patients seeking health care in other Member States of EU: rules concerning reimbursement of costs of cross-border healthcare, requirements concerning necessary administrative procedures, principle of non-discrimination, the right of patients to access medical records, obligation of providing relevant information’s to patients, recognition of prescriptions issued in another Member State, rules concerning electronic health (e-health), protection of right to privacy, and mutual assistance and cooperation of Member State in cross-border healthcare. Most importantly, healthcare that may be subjected to prior authorization is limited on specific situations. Some of this rules developed in practice of European Court of Justice. Directive 2011/24/ЕU brings important rules for patients seeking health care in other Member States, but it does not clarify sufficiently the relationship with the rules of social security contained in Regulation (EC) No 883/2004 on the coordination of social security systems.
