Video: Key outcomes EP Session EHFCN-AIM 25.04.2018

25 April 2018: EHFCN and AIM organized a joint session in the European Parliament, hosted by MEP Anne Sander. We focused on the issue of cross-border healthcare fraud and reflected on the European Commission’s Cross-Border Care Study. In accordance with the conclusions of the Study, EHFCN acknowledged the fact that many of these phenomena remain unregistered and underreported. EHFCN fully endorsed the Study’s call “to stimulate research on cross-border healthcare fraud and to invest in scientific follow-up research on the scale, patterns and types of fraud in cross-border healthcare in the EU Member States”.

This event is definitely a step in the right direction. EHFCN will continue to stimulate and coordinate bilateral and multilateral projects between EU Member States, such as the Benelux project CERBEUROS, to document and to tackle cross-border fraud phenomena. The common objective is to achieve tangible results to the benefit of both authorities and competent actors in the field and, ultimately, for every patient in Europe.
