In short (I am open to correction)The E111 form entitles you to the same level of health care in EU countries as the domestic citizens of that country recieve.
If those citizens usually pay for their healthcare then you may have to do likewise but generally this means that there are no fees.
If you attend a private facility as opposed to a public one then E111 may hold no currency there.
To avail of health care under E111 you must have it with you at the time of treatment.If you get ill and your E111 is back in your hotel room then you will be charged.
Neither E111 nor private health insurance take precedence over each other.Your call which to use.
Personally I would opt to use E111.
Posted: 13/08/2003 09:36I wish to know if I am treated in an EU country whether my personal travel insurance takes precedence over the E111 or if it is the E111 scheme that should pay he bills rather than the insurance I have paid a premium for?
