As an expat, what kind of health insurance should I choose?
If you intend to spend more than 6 weeks in Spain, we recommend you opt for a private insurance company which allows you to consult any doctor of your choice and which is reimbursing all your medical bills, including hospitalization.
There are international insurance companies like AXA PP and Allianz worldwide, British companies like BUPA or Spanish insurers like Sanitas, DKV, Mapfre, Adeslas, etc.
There are large differences between these companies with regard to coverage and we recommend you compare the details keeping your individual needs in mind.
Also note that Spanish companies will offer you different levels of insurance, you only have a free choice of physicians if you opt for the reimbursement plan.
