As a foreigner living in Granada, will I have access to public healthcare? What is it like?

Answer this Question

We asked expats in Granada if they have access to public healthcare in Granada. And, if they do have access, what is it like. They wrote...

"Yes, as a foreigner living in Granada, you will have access to public healthcare. The public healthcare system in Spain is known for its high quality and is free for all citizens and legal residents. The system is funded by the government and is available to everyone regardless of their income level. The public healthcare system in Spain is divided into primary care, which is provided by general practitioners, and specialized care, which is provided by specialists. In addition, there are also public hospitals and clinics that provide emergency care and other services," said a member in Granada, Spain.

"No, not yet. We just moved to Granada eight months ago. My understanding is that after a year, we can join the public health system. Expats in my area are typically enrolled in private health insurance. We have Sanitas private health insurance and we are happy with them, It’s not difficult to enroll, We paid about €188 per month for two people with a full coverage with no copay and no deductible. There are public hospitals in our area but we have never used them because we are not yet eligible to join until after living in Spain for a year.. We used the private hospital Vithas and are very happy with them," remarked another expat who made the move to Granada, Spain.
