If you are under state retirement age...
If you are still 'resident' in UK then your EHIC will cover you for the equivilent of NHS cover. If you intend on residing here, spending more than 183 days in cyprus AND if you decide to inform the DWP in UK that you have left UK permanently (which of course you will need to do) then they suspend your EHIC from the date you leave. If you have been paying NI contribs in UK then you apply for a form E106. Depending on how much contributions have been made, in this financial year, they will give you the E106 which has an expiry date,generally 2 years hence. this form you take to the health authority in Cyprus and you are then entitled to a reduced rate NHS type cover. It used to be £1.20CYP per visit to the doctors? depending on your income?
Once this E106 has expired you have no medical cover, unless you go private.
If you are working over here, and have registered with social insurance office, and are paying your stamp here, then you will be issued with a pink medical card which entitles you to the same as above (depending on declared income)
If you're paying your stamp here this will also go towrds your state pension when you do get to crumbley status.
If you are already a crumbley then you're entitled to free NHS cover here. You need from E121 from DWP and ditto above.
Sorry 'bout the long winded reply but HTH
