Health insurance cover. Medical insurance

All foreign students coming from E.U. countries who bring the E-111, the E-128 form (depending on their home country) or the European Health Card can receive free health care and hospital treatment from the Social Security Doctors during their stay in Spain.

Students who do not belong to E.U. countries must have an appropriate private medical insurance policy which provides them with adequate medical cover during their period of study in Spain.

All students must send a copy of their health insurance policy to the International Relations Office. Application forms will not be accepted unless proof of this document is attached.

Once in Spain, students from E.U. countries should go to a health centre of the Spanish Social Security System (see addresses below) with the E-111, the E-128 form or the European Health Card where they will be assigned a G.P.

Students from non-E.U. countries should ask in their home countries for a list of hospitals and health centres in Spain which have an agreement with their private insurance company. In such cases, students usually have to pay in advance for their medical expenses in Spain and then get reimbursed by their private insurance company.
