Title: Re: Dutch to Spain health care
Post by jools on Oct 19th, 2008 at 8:17pm
My Parents came to visit in July, both of them 80 years old.
Although they had private holiday insurance, my Mother was taken seriously ill and was in hospital in Mora d'Ebre for a month, before finally dying there.

The private insurance didn't want to know, because it was a previously diagnosed problem, but her EH1C card covered the cost of everything because she was admitted as an emergency.

The equivalent of the hospital social worker asked me to get Mum put on the Padron in the village, I'm still not sure why, because she only swelled the village residents for 24 hours before dying.

We haven't had to pay anything for her care either here or in the UK.

Hope this helps.
