So I think that would have some impact on our tourismMartin McKee, professor of European public health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine Prof McKee said that he had searched for how much it would cost in insurance for someone to visit France for one week, using comparison websites.”The advantage of EHIC is that is covers pre-existing conditions so if you want to travel abroad as a British tourist and go to France you are covered and vice versa.”So (in preparation for this hearing) I put in a few co-morbidities, like diabetes and a history of mild depression, to see how much it would cost for a one week stay in France.”It came out between £800 and £2,500,” he said. “So I think that would have some impact on our tourism.”He added: “I put in a 70-year-old with common conditions – and remember that with the rise of multi-morbidity most people over the age of 70 will have multiple conditions.”It will mean effectively that they will not be able to travel – or at least they can travel but they would take a risk of something goes wrong.” A week in France could cost a pensioner with common health problems up to £2,500 a week in insurance after Brexit, a public health professor has claimed.If Britons lose their European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) older people with multiple conditions could be forced to fork out hundreds, if not thousands, for a week in France, the Health Select Committee was told.When questioned on current reciprocal agreements on health care between EU member states, Martin McKee, professor of European public health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, said the insurance card has “many benefits”. doctor with purse  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?
