Health insurance companies in Barcelona

health insurance spain

When choosing among health insurance companies in Barcelona, it is necessary to consider the timeframe commonly called a “grace period” (periodo de carencia), during which the insured person is not permitted to access certain types of medical services. For example, for women who plan pregnancy and childbirth, this period can last up to 10 months. Policies with most insurance companies allow for use of the full range of medical services, as well as bonuses and discounts for contract renewal, after a year of constant payment of the insurance premiums.

Differences in the monthly payment amount depends upon the type of insurance purchased:

  • The copayment option includes a small monthly fee for insurance. In addition, the client is required to pay extra for the cost of any procedure, examination, or consultation he or she receives, as the company pays only partially for each medical service.
  • Страхование без copago. Оплачивается только ежемесячный взнос за страховку.
  • For insurance without a copayment option, the client pays only a monthly fee for insurance.
  • Planned hospitalization can be excluded from the policy, reducing the cost.
  • With the reimbursement option, the client can choose both a hospital and a specialist, and the insurance company reimburses up to 80-90% of the medical expenses.

The best health insurance companies in Spain are Sanitas, Adeslas, Mapfre, Asisa, Asa, Aegon, Asefa, Divina Pastora, Murimar Seguros, and Agrupacio.
