Marbella health center information

When you’re travelling, you’re health in one of the most important elements to bare in mind. If you’re health is not good you won’t be able to enjoy your holidays which is why it’s always best to prevent and get a check-up before if you find you don’t feel well.

European Health Insurance Card (EHIC)

The European Health Insurance Card is a free and temporary document that allows access to the public health care in any European country during your stay and your right to the same health care as the citizens of the European country you visit. You’ll be able to receive medical treatment in Marbella just as any other resident, although this does not imply that all the services are free as they depend on the country.

To get hold of one of these health cards, you must contact your local health authorities with the only requirement of being insured by a social security system in your own country and that this country belongs to the European Union.

If you have a smartphone you can download an app called “European Health Card” which will inform you on how to use the card abroad in each one of the different countries of the E.U.. The program also includes emergency phone numbers, treatments and covered costs.

Each health card is valid for only one person, so if you’re travelling with your family, each member must have their own card.

Bare in mind that it’s possible that they ask you to pay for the treatment, in which case you must request a refund afterwards using your health card. Remember to keep hold of all the receipts.
