    12. 12. <ul><li>a relaxation in the cross-border care arrangements, with accessibility for all insured persons, and with the greatest common denominator as regards what is laid down in the arrangements ( for two or three countries, depending on the Euregio involved) for social security coverage in respect of health care; </li></ul><ul><li>the emergence of a cross-border traffic for local care supplementing, where necessary, what can be provided to insured persons in their own country; </li></ul><ul><li>an extension to patients and insured persons from other Euregios, in the context of bilateral and multilateral (experimental) arrangements, cross-border care which at the outset will be available only to the residents of one Euregio and mainly for high-technology care. </li></ul><ul><li>Perspectives </li></ul>
    13. 13. <ul><li>The Euregio projects should receive greater support from the European authorities. A complete listing of all cross-border initiatives should be prepared, a survey of Euregio infrastructure should be carried out, and a profile of the populations involved should be drawn up. This information would make it possible to draw up a specific action programme for the development of cross-border activities in the field of health. The effect of this proposal could be to remove the obstacles to the reform of Regulation 1408/71 by offering new prospects in the field of health . </li></ul><ul><li>CONCLUSIONS </li></ul>
