The Spanish Health Care System

The Spanish health care system, el Systema Nacional de Salud, ranks highly in the world (ranked the fifth best system out of 191 countries, according to the Dale Health scale). You’ll qualify for state health care in Spain if you have a social security number — either because you work for a Spanish company, or are registered as self-employed within the country. If you hold a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), you’ll have access to state-provided medical treatment. But some issues do exist.

Spanish government spending cuts in recent years have led to staffing shortages and long waiting times in many hospitals. Private healthcare insurance helps you bypass these potential problems and gives you the peace of mind that you and your loved ones will have speedy access to hundreds of fantastically equipped, private hospitals across Spain. Arranging private healthcare cover before you relocate to the country is a safety net you’ll always need to consider.
