Summary/Abstract: Europeans have always been free to travel to receive care in other member states, but if they wished to benefit from their statutory social protection scheme, they were subject to Regulation 1408/71 and Regulation 574/72 about coordination of social security systems. Opportunities to obtain medical services outside the domestic country radically changed in 1998 with two linked rulings by the European Court of Justice. To overcome the legal uncertainty a debate begins on the adoption of Community legislation regulating cross-border healthcare. The article discusses the legislative initiatives of the EU, led to the adoption of Directive 2011/24/EU.
