EU students told health insurance 'just a technicality', after German woman threatened with removal | UK news | The Guardian
Now, in a significant development the Home Office says this will not be acted upon.

“EU citizens will not be removed from the UK or refused entry solely because they do not have comprehensive sickness insurance,” said a spokesman.
The categorical assurance is a departure from previous Home Office statements. It will assuage growing fears among students and other categories of EU nationals including stay-at-home parents that they were at risk of removal for not complying with a hitherto little-known requirement to have “comprehensive sickness insurance” (CSI) to qualify for residency in the UK. [...] There is no known case of the Home Office enforcing the CSI rule even though there are more than 120,000 EU students in the UK.
