Patients' rights within the Cross-border healthcare

According with the Article 3 of the Directive 2011/24/EU, "Cross-border healthcare" is the healthcare provided or prescribed in a Member State other than the Member State of affiliation.
The freedom to receive health services throughout the European Union must be accompanied by guarantees of quality and security. In order to make an informed choice, patients must be able to access all the information they require on the conditions under which they will receive healthcare in another EU Member State and the conditions under which they will be reimbursed once they return home.
