If you are a citizen of Latvia, you have an access to world-class healthcare systems of the number of the EU countries free of charge or at highly subsidized rates.
Your European Health Insurance Card is valid for use throughout any of EU countries and in Switzerland. At the moment, the EEA consists of the 28 member states of the European Union together with Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland. The aim of EU policy is to ensure that you are a part of a social security system and that you do not lose your rights, regardless of the member state you decide to live or work in. The host country’s responsibility is to get the treatment costs reimbursed by the health service in your home country.
With Latvian citizenship (and therefore EU citizenship) when you are visiting any EU country for travel you can receive basic and emergency health care with a European Health Insurance Card. You can obtain this card free of charge.
It means that with a Latvian passport if you unexpectedly have health problems during your stay in another state of the EU or Switzerland – whether on holiday, a business trip or for a study – you will be entitled to any medical care that can’t wait until you get home. You have the same rights to health treatment as people in the country you are in.
With Latvian citizenship, you and your family have the same social security benefits as citizens of the country in which you study, live or work. These rights cover benefits payable for accidents at work, occupational illness, death and unemployment, sickness and maternity benefits, disability, old-age and survivor’s benefits, as well as family allowances. You will have all the benefits of medical care as EU citizens.
