Why do I need Private Health Insurance?

Blog Category Health Insurance in Spain

Although the Spanish Social Security system is one of the best in the world, in recent years it has been saturated by the influx of people and the shortage of medical staff.


This has led many people to opt for private medical insurance, which speeds up many procedures and also offers additional cover and services that the Social Security does not have, such as speedy appointments with specialists, private room in the event of hospitalisation, a bed for a companion, etc. For these and many other reasons, it is a good idea to consider taking out private health insurance.


This type of insurance works in the same way as any other: you take out the product that suits your needs, pay a premium (monthly, half-yearly, yearly) and you will receive the contracted services and coverage.


Advantages of taking out private health insurance

Here are some of the advantages and reasons why you should take out a good private health insurance policy:


Quick Medical Attention

One of the biggest problems in the Spanish Social Security system is the waiting time to be seen by a specialist. With a private medical insurance policy you will have fast and efficient care, avoiding long waits.


Access to a Wide Network of Doctors and Centres + Hospitalisation

With private medical insurance, you will have access to a wide network of doctors and specialised centres.

If you have contracted hospitalisation, the private medical insurance will take care of the expenses that this admission generates. The clinic or hospital will offer preferential treatment to the patient, providing the best possible comfort.


Second Medical Opinion

Depending on the pathology you have, it may be convenient and/or necessary to get a second medical opinion to determine what treatment is appropriate for that particular illness. With private medical insurance you will have the possibility of consulting the best specialists in Spain and abroad.


Digital Consultation

Due to the situation we are currently experiencing because of COVID-19, many insurance companies have set up digital platforms for medical consultations. This method of assistance can be by phone call or video call, by which you will be in contact with a specialist doctor who will guide you according to the symptomatology you have.

These are just some of the reasons why you should consider taking out private health insurance. Depending on the type of insurance and coverage, you can find very affordable products.
