Citizens from European Union states will have the possibility to use their health insurance in Romania, under a government decision. The measure came following a change to a government ordinance issued last year regarding free circulation of EU and European Economic Area citizens in Romania.
The measure provides that health insurance policies signed in EU countries will be acknowledged by the Romanian insurance system. The document includes the concept of “partner” regarding people who benefit from the right to free circulation and residency in Romania.
A “partner” does not represent a family member, but the person living with an EU citizen, given the relation is legally recorded in the country of origin or it can be proven.
