Brexit to maintain recipocal healthcare for Brit/EU retirees
Reposted incase it gets missed in the BBC thread

"Brexit healthcare deal is ‘good news for pensioners’
David Davis says negotiators have agreed to maintain reciprocal healthcare for British and EU retirees affected by Brexit"

"British pensioners who have retired to other EU countries will continue to have their healthcare paid for by the NHS post-Brexit, after a deal in principle was agreed by negotiators in Brussels."

Where did you read this? (The link below does not work).
As far as I am aware there has been no agreement on anything yet.

Chris you are right I can not see anywere mention of the S1.

The Independent 3 days ago wrote
" It is understood that the European Commission is at this stage only prepared to agree that UK citizens living in the EU at the time of separation should keep access to their EHIC." and " Brexit Secretary David Davis said the retention of the EHIC for people already living in other member states was “good news for example, for British pensioners in the EU”.

“It means that they will continue to have their health care arrangements protected both where they live and – when they travel to another Member State – to be able to use an EHIC card,” he said"

It says travel to but not actualy say that the actual visit will be covered.
