This is what we can do for you

As a citizen of the EU, EPECS offers you a platform in the field of health and well-being. We are members of several European networks and associations. We stand for citizens and your voice is heard. Together, we try to influence and improve European policy on health and well-being.

In addition, we can help you with

Do you have a cross-border health or welfare question in the EU? If so, we will take it up with you. We can offer you a platform by raising issues in the right place. If citizens are organised in e.g. a consumers’ association, parents’ organisation, patients’ organisation, we are happy to work with you.

Citizens’ Panel

Do you want to become a member of our citizens’ panel? EPECS is building its own citizens’ panel. We want to consult the citizen panel members several times a year on cross-border issues in the field of health and well-being. Would you like to join us?

    Citizens’ summit

    Your rights

    The health insurance company is obliged to reimburse the costs of outpatient treatment abroad. In the case of hospitalisation, however, prior permission is required. You can read more about this in the Dutch brochure Your rights which is mainly aimed at Dutch patients in Belgium. For more information on your rights, go to our special page.

    Self regulation

    People can usually do more than they think they can. And if you want to change or improve something in your life, it is good to know what your options are. The Dutch self-management tool is a tool to help you visualise these possibilities. It allows you to make use of the experience and knowledge of people who have gone through the same thing.
