I'm a European (German) citizen who wants to do a short-term (10 weeks) internship in the UK.
The main question remains where I need to be health-insured and where I need to pay for it.
- UK: It would be taken from my pay directly and I would be covered under the NHS. Reasons speaking against that from what I've found: I'm only there for 10 weeks and it is only for residents
- Germany: I would have to pay it on my own and I would be covered with the EHIC.
If the first one applies, would I need to get de-registered in Germany first and register again when I return?
If the second one applies, is it correct that I wouldn't be able to stay insured through my parents? I'm currently covered though family insurance, but I get paid about 6000 EUR for the whole internship and I would probably have to get insurance myself (which costs about 15%, ouch. NHS seems cheaper).
