Healthcare With Spain!! Get the Best Treatment Here!!

Health centres and hospitals in Spain.

To qualify for free services in health centres and Spanish hospitals, you must either be registered with the state healthcare system, have private healthcare insurance , hold an EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) or be a national from a country with a billateral health agreement with Spain – specifically, Andorra, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Paraguay and Peru. If not, you will be asked to pay medical fees unless it’s an emergency.

For every visit to a public or private Spanish hospital, you must bring your goverment issued health card (Sistema de Informacion Poblacional or SIP) or proof of private insurance and another form of ID to claim free or subsidised healthcare services.

This guide explains everything you need to know before going to the hospital in Spain, as well provides a list of the main hospitals in Barcelona, Madrid and a few more main cities.
