This will need to be completed by your consultant indicating what treatment is necessary, why the surgery should be carried out abroad, what the prognosis will be in terms of further treatment, and the estimated cost etc. The health insurer will then assess the case on its merits and decide what benefit will apply, if at all. If the claim is to be admitted, the insurer will normally pay up to the level that it would pay if the procedure was carried out in Ireland.

This belies the role's significance. Far more multifaceted than many of the "plum jobs," it is one of three binomial ministerial roles (ie "the Minister of X and Y")**, but crucial to the running of the modern Estonia so often marketed internationally.It was thus timely to catch up with Riina Sikkut — the second-newest minister, only starting work in May and being sworn in at the same time as Minister of Public Administration Janek Mäggi (Centre) — to tell us about the situation now, in the future, to provide practical info, as well as to correct some misconceptions about the Estonian health service.Arriving at the newish so-called Superministry building on Suur Ameerika Street just south of Tallinn's city centre, I couldn't ignore the looming general election (Riina Sikkut's loyalties are to the Social Democratic Party, or SDE, one of three governmental coalition parties) and the concurrent jostling for position. How the somewhat charming and immensely likeable Ms … [Read more...] about Interview: Riina Sikkut on health, labour, equality and her role
