One of the stresses about relocating to Spain is often the concern over accessing the state health care scheme. If you’re not planning to work in Spain or haven’t yet reached retirement age to access your pension and entitlement to health care in Europe then we’d suggest taking out a private medical insurance policy.
We looked at the top recommended health care insurers recently, the one that stood out above the rest was ASSSA Seguros. We liked the simplicity of their plans, the fact that you do not need to pay for treatment and claim it back and the importance of having a choice of private doctors, clinics, specialists and hospital available for us to choose from in our local area. Never forgetting, that the language barrier disappears with private medical insurance, ensuring that you can talk to your doctor in confidence, in your preferred language.
With ASSSA you also stay at the age you join, so there is no age related price increase and it’s guaranteed for life so the policy can’t be cancelled due to a critical illness or age.
If you are living or intending to live in Spain for more than 3 months, the Spanish Government now require proof that you are covered for health care before issuing a residencia, we covered the different ways that you can access the Spanish Health Care system in our article following a British Consulate open day in Lanzarote.
