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 ?
If Brits do not have special rules the EHIC card can not be used like that. It can be used as a way to get emergency treatment in another country. When you become resident it is not valid anymore. And its personal.

This link will answer a lot of questions

European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) ? EHIC CARD, E111 CARD

I think it's called an E106 there is a number on this thread somewhere for the dept in Newcastle where the info can be obtained. That usually lasts for 2 & half years & provides reciprocal health care.

If you move to an EEA country to live but not work and don't receive a UK benefit, you may be eligible for up to two-and-a-half years of state healthcare, paid for by the UK.
You will need to apply for form S1 (or form E106 if you are moving to Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway or Switzerland) with the Overseas Healthcare Team (Newcastle). You also need to prove that you have worked in the UK and paid National Insurance contributions up to three years before your departure.
For further advice, contact the Overseas Healthcare Team (Newcastle):
Overseas Healthcare Team (Newcastle)
Room TC001
Tyneview Park
Whitley Road
Newcastle upon Tyne
NE98 1BA
Phone 0191 218 1999 (Monday to Friday 8am-5pm).
The S1 (or E106) will entitle you to treatment on the same basis as a resident of the country you are moving to. This may mean that you have to make a patient contribution toward the cost of your care.
When the cover on the S1 (or E106) expires, you cannot get any further medical cover from the UK until you receive a UK state pension. It is up to the country’s authorities to decided whether you are eligible to join their healthcare scheme.
You will also be entitled to a UK-issued EHIC, allowing you to visit other EEA countries besides the one you are a resident with.

Thanks
I think it is now the S1 from Newcastle - TEL 0191 218 1999 and option 1 !

Once I have this and my EHIC I think/hope that I will be OK for state medical cover for up to 2.5 years in Cyprus ??

Am I right as healthcare is one of the most important issues in the move for me !

Hope to hear from you all - especially any CORNISH Cypriots ????

Just a word of warning here. If you access your EHIC card through one of the many sites promoted on the internet you will be charged. The card is free direct from the NHS website.

For the moment, I shall be seeking private healthcare as my husband will not becoming resident on the Island.

Does anyone know of any decent health insurance providers?
How easy is it to claim?

Also, I am working in the UK currently... Will i be entitled to use the S1 form i have read about?


Lastly, How does it work for my Children? ( 8 and 5 years currently) They will not be covered by S1 i assume. so will have to seek private healthcare anyway for them, right?

Oh, and if one of us falls ill over there, apart from the General cough/cold, If it's somehting you would like to seek professional opinions on, where do you actually go? Is there a specific clinic that you would need to attend via your insurance?

Thanks in advance

I'm hoping someone can just send me in the right direction, actually any direction will do.

I am a US citizen married to a cypriot citizen. I recently gave birth here to a beautiful baby boy. I do intend to to report this birth to the US consulate to hopefully get him US citizenship...but does my baby have any rights to healthcare here at all?

I gave birth at a private clinic and my peds is also private...but I'm hoping that God forbid something happened to my little one, that we do have the general hospital as back up.

Thanks in advance.

If you are resident in Cyprus your son has the same rights as you and your husband. And if you want he can get double passports, Cyprus still allow that.

Your baby is a Cypriot - born in Cyprus to a Cypriot parent so is entitled to healthcare regardless of the private hospital birth. He is also American and you can record the birth with the consulate and get him both a Cyprus and USA passport.
