Hi.
I am a little confused. I downloaded the application form for medical card from Ministry of Health. In this form the limits for free healthcare is very different from what it say in this post. So what is true

The amounts I quoted were what was given to me and what everyone at the time said it was. Perhaps the amounts have changed in which case its good news as people can earn more before having to pay.

Once you have your yellow slip you no longer have to renew it as an EU citizen. The old ones had expiry dates on, (they lasted about 5 years) but the new ones do not have expiry dates if you are an EU citizen.
So unlike Germany you don't have to keep renewing it.

I believe it is possible to apply for a form E106 or SI if you are below retirement age and not working, it will give limited coverage for 2.5 years and then you will need your own insurance to carry you through to retirement age

Hello, Can anyone shed some light on where i stand when i move over?

I will not be working intially, because my children are school age, and am not sure i can find a job to suit their schools term times.
My husband will be working (abroad)

Will i be entitled to any kind of healthcare? or will i have to go "Private"?

That depends ofc where your husband will pay tax. And where he will be resident. If he is resident in Cyprus and will pay in to the social system then you and children will be covered also. If not, then you need private insurance.

Hi
I am 8 months and 3 days and counting to retirement and will receive my works pension to live on for 2.5 years until I recieve my State Pension at 65 (yes one of the lucky ones!). I think that means that I can use my EHIC for those 2.5 years and then my medical treatment will be free in Cyprus is that correct? I also have a civil partner who is younger than me and will he be a "dependent" because he is not of retirement age or will he need private medical cover? Finally I read a thread about AB Insurance Cyprus has anyone had good experiences of them please ?
