Re: Health insurance if you live in 3 different countries during the year?

MC, the daughter is an EU national so providing she can support her mother it should be no problem.

The main problems I see are:

a) for Switzerland you're also supposed to be resident here for the majority of your time so at least 183 days a year to get and keep a permit.

b) jumping around like this and being a resident in all 3 countries will leave her open to being taxed in all 3 as well.

I think the tax issue will be solved easily.

c) Swiss health cover will not apply if she's also a resident in the other 2 countries, it only might apply if she's a tourist and only for emergency cover up to whatever the equivalent is in Switzerland.
That's the main thing that she is researching: in which country (or countries) that she should be officially resident so the health care will cover her on the others. Argentina is definitely not a problem to be either a resident or a tourist. Then it come down how to be covered when she is either in the USA or CH.

Why does the mother want to move around so much? It makes no sense, even if she has relatives in the other countries.
Since she is a relatively wealthy retired widow, she wants to enjoy life splitting her time with her daughters (one here, one in the USA).
