My Mum has just phoned me from sunny
Manchester and said she watched a programme about expats returning from Spain after not being able to get health cover in spain, they apparently sold up their properties and had returned to the UK, to be told that they are not covered by the NHS anymore because they left the country over 2 yrs ago. Can anyone tell me if this is the case for ALL expats who may have to return. Apparently if your over retirement age then your ok, but these people wern't and so had to pay for an opperation in the UK. Then they found huge problems getting medical insurance cover in UK because they had illness that made the insurance premium to high.
Any input would be great, its a bit worrying to think that if we HAD to return for some unforseen reason, (not medically) that we could end up with a huge bill for medicine.
