No-Deal Health Care?

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson struck an 11th-hour Brexit deal last night with European Commission President Jean Claude Juncker ahead of the EU summit today. But Britons abroad are still on tenterhooks about their health care.

Johnson still faces a major hurdle in getting it passed in the UK Parliament, where opposition parties are hoping to squash the deal, CNN reports.

The uncertainty has Britons on the Continent weighing their post-Brexit health coverage options. And private insurers are ready to cash in, Reuters reports.

Some temporary protections exist for expats in the event of a no-deal Brexit, but inquiries to international health insurers have spiked amid the Brexit fracas. Many Britons abroad are concerned that their new insurers won’t cover pre-existing conditions—or that they can’t afford policies that do.
