Wheelchair accessible holiday villa Spain
Costa Blanca, San Fulgencio La Marina

Care abroad

The Spanish healthcare system is excellent and there are numerous doctors, dentists, health centres, hospitals and every kind of medical specialist on the Costa Blanca. Private healthcare is excellent, cheaper than in the UK and far more comprehensive. Most private health insurances will include hospital treatment, visits to your GP, GP visits to your property, dental costs and emergency ambulances.
European-Health-Insurance-Card.jpg European Union social security coordination enhances cooperation between member countries reduces the number of documents needed. EU residents who unexpectedly fall ill while travelling temporarily within the European Union medical care can be accessed by holders of the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC).
For information on the EHIC, see the European Health Insurance Card page.
Please note: following the results of the EU referendum, no changes have yet been announced to the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) service.
If you do not have an EHIC card and are traveling to Spain, we would strongly recommend taking out a single cover travel insurance or an annual multi trip travel insurance if you are travelling regularly.  This could save you a considerable amount in unexpected medical and emergency costs whilst in Spain.
