In the context of the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the European Commission adopted a series of measures meant to ensure a good cooperation between member states, which target both cross-border medical assistance and the financing and procurement of monetary resources necessary for the efficiency and cover of medical services required for the treatment of patients affected by this virus. In order to support this endeavor, conventions were adopted for the medical assistance of cross-border patients and for the acknowledgement of the medical professionals’ qualifications, as well as for the formation of emergency medical teams with the aim of coordinating and financing cross-border medical assistance and emergency transport of patients infected with COVID-19.
Key words: cross-border medical assistance, acknowledgement of medical qualifications, financing and emergency transport for patients with Covid-19.
