Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 117
Lara Comi (PPE)

 Subject:  Application of Directive 2011/24/EU
 Answer(s) 

In the light of Article 1(4) of Directive 2011/24/EU, the European Charter of Patients’ Rights, and the information leaflet on the application of the new directive, which is written for citizens and entitled, ‘Seeking healthcare in another EU Member State: your rights’,

can the Commission answer the following questions:
1. Does it think that the interpretative texts are sufficiently clear and detailed to rule out any misunderstandings, particularly as regards patients’ freedom of access to healthcare provided by public and private institutions, and restrictions on choice?
2. What measures has the Commission taken to ascertain whether all healthcare available in a country is duly presented at National Contact Points, without any exclusions of private structures and operators that are accredited or contracted to provide healthcare on behalf of the statutory social care insurance scheme or national health service?
