I would like to inform you or anyone else that is interested  that you can only add your partner to your E121 as a dependant if you are married.

If you are in receipt of a State Pension from the UK you can apply for an E121 ... once you have received the relevant paperwork from the UK you take it to your local IKA office and they will give you an IKA Health Book.  If your partner is not of pensionable age, you can add him/her to your E121 as a dependant.

If you are not yet of pensionable age, then you should take out private health insurance in the UK.  (not in Greece!!!)

Hello captain vimes

Regarding Greek private Insurance

You are 59 y.o according to your member's profile.

You have not said whether you are moving/retiring to Greece.

Let us assume you are, you should be aware of something about taking out private greek insurance:

Greek insurers require 10 years participation in any health plan prior to the age of sixty or sixty five in order for the insured to keep the policy for a lifetime. Otherwise the plans terminate at age 70.

Of course, on retirement from an EU state, if you declare you stay in Greece, and will take your pension, you will have deducted a small amount to cover state health costs provided by IKA - Greece's NHS/social security. That means basically free treatment except for medicines and other exceptional items.

More on Private Greek Insurance.
  

Treat fairly, those who treat you fairly. To shout is a sign of weakness. Confucious may have said: "Don't be easily hurt or offended. Take a deep breath, count to 10. Log off and make a cup of tea.

Depends on the size of your "arm and leg" Smiley We took out ours with Axa because they were who our company policy had been with. Lots of others on the net though, with lots of small print like every insurance policy!!
