Health Insurance in Spain

                                                                                                           

For UK pensioners the Spanish health service is free of charge (local state doctors surgeries and hospitals) It is also free for those who are paying a monthly self-employed contributions which includes all family members of the household. For those that are not working or drawing a pension will have to pay for private medical care, however there are changes being planned so that all fiscal residents also have the benefit of free health care. (A fiscal resident is someone who completes their annual tax returns in Spain which means declaring all their income both from UK and Spain and including state and private pensions.)
