Can I still use the Spanish system if I register with Medcare?
Absolutely, Medcare Costa Blanca, can work with and complement the Spanish system. In fact, 80% of our patients are also registered with the Spanish national health system but choose to use Medcare as well because they find it easier to deal with a British Doctor, and because it can work out cheaper than paying a translator to accompany them to a Spanish doctor.
Can I use Medcare if I am in Spain on holiday and fall ill?
Yes. Although our resident patients benefit from membership plans, you do not have to be a member to use Medcare.
If I am resident in Spain do I have to be a member to use Medcare?
