Romania and Austria might set up a framework of cooperation in the field of healthcare services, as discussed on Monday, 10 September, in Vienna, in the first day of the informal meeting of EU Health Ministers, under the aegis of the current Austrian Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
Romanian and Austrian Health Ministers, Sorina Pintea and Beate Hartinger – Klein discussed this issue following the increased number of Romanian patients choosing to undergo medical treatment in Austria.
So far, reimbursements for medical services agreed between the two countries have taken place thanks to personal relationships, Sorina Pintea said, adding that she would like the signing of a partnership, to provide Romanian patients with a much more direct and easier access to healthcare services in Austria, that they do not have in Romania.
Bucharest’s approaching six-months Presidency of the Council of the European Union, to start on January 1st 2019, has also been discussed by the Health Ministers from Romania and Austria.
