In requiring sickness insurance cover and sufficient resources not to become a burden on the social assistance system, do Articles 7(1)(b) and 8(4) of Directive 2004/38/EC of 29 April 2004 1 introduce indirect discrimination … to the detriment of persons who, due to their disability, are not in a position to work or who can work only in a limited capacity and who can therefore find themselves without sufficient resources to meet their needs without significant or even unreasonable reliance on the social assistance system of the host Member State where they reside?
