Default Health Care - E121

This does not seem to be mentioned in your Free Beer Thread - if it is please delete this one.

The E121 Healthcare form, which is issued to British State Pensioners, and entitles them to free healthcare, is also available to those people who are under retirement age, but were receiving Long-term Incapacity Benefit from the UK and continue to receive it in Spain. IB is one of the few British State Benefits you can continue to receive in Spain. The E121 will cover the person (and possibly their dependents) for as long as they are on IB.

Hope this helps.

I do not have a link; I just know this is the case as my husband is on IB and was sent a form E121 from the DWP in the UK saying that they would cover his health costs for as long as he is on the Benefit; once my E106 ran out I asked if I could be covered on it as I have no income and he was sent another E121 which covers me too.

He is 58 and I am 57.

Hope this helps!

Not sure about free beer, but in one area of Spain, one of the parties contesting the local elections ahs promised free Viagara for pensioners, in the hope of improving the birth rate in the area.. I wonder if they are providing the young ladies as well. ( item on a local radio station)
