Spanish National Health System
Fortunately, the Spanish National Health System is highly accessible. Hospitals are publicly run and you can visit them for free or at a very low cost if you have private health insurance. It’s important to bring your social security card and private health insurance information with you, even if you don’t have coverage in Spain. In most cases, however, you’ll be expected to pay out of pocket. To avoid paying out of pocket for hospital treatment, you can visit the emergency room at a public hospital, or call the emergency number in Spain. You can also call the emergency line on your landline or cell phone.
General Health Law
The General Spanish Health Law is a set of guidelines aimed at providing adequate public health care. The aim of the legislation is to provide health benefits to the entire Spanish population under conditions of effective equality. The law aims to improve social and territorial imbalances through health policy, with state resources, autonomous communities and other public administrations coordinating health actions. These obligations will be met by fees for certain health services and contributions. Here are some points to keep in mind:
Law of Cohesion and Quality of the National Health System
The Spanish National Health System is a public sector healthcare system that is funded by general taxation, with minor exceptions in the Basque Country and Navarre. The law establishes a national health services catalog, which guarantees basic conditions for continuous health care. The services covered in the catalog range from diagnosis, prevention and treatment to the promotion of citizen health. The Law has many benefits for citizens, including reduced or free access to dental care, long-term care and a comprehensive health care system.
Population of Spanish Salud
The General Health Law of 1986 created the Spanish National Health Service (Salud). This law defines the basic principles of public health policy and creates an interterritorial council to coordinate health activities. The Interterritorial Council is a joint body of regional government and health authorities to provide health care in Spain. Its goal is to ensure health for all Spanish citizens and their families. The Spanish population is approximately 71 million people.
