The European Commission has decided to send Slovakia a formal request to comply with its obligations over rules on reimbursement of medical expenses incurred in another member state. The commission believes that patients from Slovakia are being wrongly denied reimbursement claims following medical treatment elsewhere within the EU. They are then faced with medical bills that, according to EU rules, should be paid by their own member state, the commission said, as reported by the SITA newswire.
