Parliamentary questions

Answer given by Mr Oettinger on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: E-004709/2018

The Commission would like to point out that officials and other servants of the European Union (and members of their family, subject to certain conditions) are covered by the Joint Sickness Insurance Scheme of the European Union (JSIS), which reimburses medical expenses for most medical procedures and treatments at the rate of 80-85% (subject to certain ceilings).

The scheme is financed by a contribution equivalent to 1.7% of each member’s basic monthly salary and a contribution from the EU budget.

The reimbursement arrangements, rates of reimbursement and ceilings applicable to each service are set out in the rules drawn up by common agreement between the EU’s institutions, bodies and agencies, as well as in the general implementing provisions. The same rules therefore apply to the staff of the different institutions, including the European Parliament and the Commission.

The Commission will send directly to the Honourable Member and to the Secretariat-General of the Parliament the above rules and a table containing the requested data, relating to the expenditure incurred for certain medical services in 2016, 2017 and between 1 January and 15 October 2018.
