I-O-M Medical Insurance Now required!!!!

I know its April the 1st, but its just been announced as being Genuine that the Isle of Man Government is leaving the European agreement on reciprocal medical treatment between member states. This will mean that ALL visiters will need to have private medical insurance as per Switzerland and Andorra and other Countries that are not members of the EU.. This is being applied as from April 1st.

I hope that this is a wind-up, as the only winner will be the insurance company's.(As usual)

The UK medical card will be of no use requiring us to have comprehensive medical insurance. This will have major implications from those attending the TT races and other events on the island. There will always be those who take a chance and end up with incredible medical costs, not to mention transportation cost of getting home!

Just hope its a wind-up.............

IOM medical insurance

You are a bit early on this one. There is a change starting on 1st April 2010. This has come about because the UK has decided to cancel all its reciprocal health agreements with its dependencies. Jersey and Guernsey's went this year. This is a UK decision. The Isle of Man government is still deciding how to tackle this issue and nothing has yet been decided about non-residents paying for treatment.
The attached document should be helpful as it explains things more.
It's a pretty low trick from Gordon Brown & co given the number of manx, channel island and other dependency people who gave their lives in the wars for Britain.
