Thanks for that information. I will make enquiries if I am unfortunate enough for some Brexit issue to mess up me getting the S1.

Well it was voted on and passed through Congress into Law back last September......so please name these people who "know legal proceedure" you state.....any where we can read their findings that contradict what was in the media

https://elpais.com/politica/2018/09/...02_681558.html there is even a Video that was on all Spanish news showing that Congress had voted it into Law

Well I might not take everything CAB as gospel even they accept that the decree has not passed into law. In other words they seem now to accept they were a bit hasty in making judgements about the decree. This was also pointed out in the Spanish version of El Pais although it is not really that big a thing for Spanish voters

So no evidence I requested regarding these " in the know legal people" you mention forthcoming?
The piece in El Pais recently was a one line comment which you seem to believe over their entire whole page article with accompanying photos on 6th Sept 2018. And next you'll be claiming the actual video is a mock up and done in photoshop with actors.....get real....

They all entered their particular INSS Office through the appropriate public entrance, they ruled out using a tactical entrance via second floor windows with flash/bang grenades as unnecessary

Hi all. I posted on another thread. We are in Almeria, not working, under state pension age. Received our Spanish health card in January. Asked for the “legislation letter “ from DWP and application was accepted. Hope that helps.

The reason that Andalucia was the first region to implement the universal healthcare law was because it was already doing so in certain cases where the resident was not covered by any other option.

Before 2012 there was universal health care, but a law was passed to stop it, but Andalucia refused to do so and continued to offer it. This law has just been repealed by the government so in theory we are now back to the pre 2012 situation.

That is true Fred. The original repeal by PP was deemed illegal and Andalucia always treated undocumented immigrants. The new decree was passed. This also true. However it has not been placed on the agenda to be a law and will have to wait until after the elections. If PSOE do not form a government then it is likely that it will not be placed on the court agenda. I think I am right about this and deserve the opportunity to place my view of the situation on this forum without being shouted down .

Myself and my wife, retired but under retirement age hence no S1, not and have never been autonomo are both on the Spanish NHS and have been for a few years. Got the cards and everything.

Couple of friends of ours were on convenio especial, but were automatically moved to full NHS last year, even had their final payments refunded.

Have other friends on NHS also.

All in Andalucia, specifically Sayalonga.

You have every right but equally you should respond when challenged however you don't, you simply bleat on with your inaccurate comments,.I refer you to my previous post. It was voted on and passed video evidence of this again below.....sorry you can't quite understand the facts
