    • SanitaseXpat Looks like is the new legislation. had another client which has been charged 400€ for analyses and never had a report, when all she needed was to be administered an injection for her allergy which was in her wallet…

    • Emmie Constance Weston So basically your talking about people that haven’t lived here for a long time then not people that have spent most of there lives here if your a resident this obviously doesn’t apply then.

    • SanitaseXpat Same applies for a resident who hasn’t paid into the system for more than three months.

    • Colleen Mayes But with the recent changes if on paro you are still entitled to public health care..So it’s if you are not working or paro has finished then you are not entitled to public health care – even if a resident..What you need to do is go to the local Inem and register and then you are entitled to still use the public health care

    • SanitaseXpat Hi Colleen this is the info received from Costa del Sol Hospital today.

    • Colleen Mayes ok thanks..Did they mention if on paro is ok? I’m due in 9 weeks…

    • SanitaseXpat Yes on paro you should be covered, believe your pregnancy is already being followed by your SS asigned doctor? go and get information from them as I was stunned at the news today, I use the SS for my baby s vaccines as well and doing her check-ups there.

    • SanitaseXpat Hi Helen, are you getting “Paro” ? your child would have cover no matter if you work or not believe until 18 years of age under the system.
