UK and Italy in talks on reciprocal healthcare in case of no-deal Brexit

The Local | March 29, 2019

The UK government says it is in talks with its Italian counterpart to secure a deal that would protect their citizens' access to healthcare in the event of a no-deal Brexit. But concerns remain about what other rights Brits in Italy would retain during Italy's proposed 'no-deal' transition period. The Italian government's 'no-deal Brexit' decree, published earlier this week, outlines various provisions to assist Brits living in the country should the UK exit the European Union without a deal including the commitment that the 65,000 British nationals living in Italy will continue to access healthcare until the end of 2020, subject to Britain reciprocating for the 700,000 Italians living in the UK.
