European Union on the verge of a new legislation to ease cross border medical care

from the The Wall Street Journal

European Union citizens would be able to seek medical acre anywhere in the 27-nation bloc without prior authorization and get reimbursement for the treatment by their insurer under draft rules presented by the EU executive. The guidelines are meant to ease congestion in countries with long waiting lists for certain kinds of operations and allow people greater freedom to choose where they want to be treated.
However, the Bristish government said its National Health Service wouldn't fund any care abroad that wouldn't be provided in Britain.
