SIP card is like the new NHS E111 (now a plastic credit type, came into force July 2005) and is for health service here in Spain. You can get one of these cards by first visiting your local Town Hall and getting a padron, then go to your local health centre with your passport and ask for a SIP card, you will be given a cardboard one as a temp card then about three weeks later you will get your plastic one.

If your Long term Illness causes you problems with travel or you have to be returned to your country of origin and you are not insured you will face bills of thousands of euros, while traveling in EU countries. Your insurance will cover you in this event.

i did this along with my husband at my local health centre but because i didnt have a contract set up at work yet and my husband did he was issued with a card and i was told that i would need to use my e111 if i needed too until i got a conract . i was then told by somene else that because my husband had a contract and we were married i was entitled to get a card aswell so i returned with my marriage certificate to the health centre and she still said
that i was to go back once i had a contract . can anyone help me clear this up
