Jersey has health agreements with a number of different countries. These agreements provide some free health care, or health care at a lower cost, if you are taken ill while on holiday. Only urgent treatment will be provided. You are therefore strongly advised to ensure you have insurance in place.
Most agreements only cover you as a visitor, not if you are living or working in the other country.
If you live in Jersey and are taken ill while visiting another country, you cannot claim a refund for medical bills from any States of Jersey Department.
The cost of bringing a sick person back to Jersey is never covered under any of the health agreements. You would need to pay for this yourself.
To find out more about the health agreements with other countries, contact the Social Security Department.
