If you are not covered for public health care through any other means, the Spanish health authorities offer a special pay-in scheme known as 'convenio especial'.
This is a health insurance scheme that allows you pay a monthly fee to access the public health care system, regardless of pre-existing conditions. Children do not have to join the Convenio Especial as they are protected under Spanish law and can access public health care for free.
The basic monthly fee is 60€ for those under 65s and 157€ for those aged 65 and above. It is important to note that prescriptions are not subsidised so you can expect to pay 100% of the costs.
This form of cover doesn’t give holders the right to an EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) so private travel insurance should be purchased.
If you would like more information or help accessing this scheme then send us an email or call us during opening times (as listed in the right-hand column).
