You can (in most regions) register as a "parejo de hecho" which should give you the same rights as a married couple.

In some regions this registration also affects IHT but not in others.

It will down to the Valencian government to decide whether a parejo de hecho applies to health cover.

Many thanks for this information, you mention the Valencia region so does the Parajo de hecho apply all over Spain, particularly on the Costa Del Sol, as this is an area where we are looking to reside but like life it can always change

In Andalucia parejo de hecho is available and gives the same rights as a married couple with regard to tax.

So for those with no pre existing conditions, it will be far cheaper normally to take out private health rather than pay up to €300 a month per person!

My private health when I came here was €100 a month for both of us!

Unfortunately I suppose that is a mis-print, I cannot believe that they expect people to pay that rate per month - surely that is per quarter But I agree still not cheap.

I bet it is monthly!

about the same as paying autonomo..............

edit - having just read it again - that's per person

so not quite the same................

Sounds like you are forgetting autonomo payments also includes the pension element it is not solely for health cover

Think about it, why shouldnt these people pay 200 plus a month, they will after all be those with pre-existing conditions probably costing a fortune to treat etc.

Why should a new country and its tax payers fund expensive treatment for people with pre-existing conditions who have contributed nothing to the health service of their new country?

But on the other hand they are still in Europe, and have probably paid enough to receive it in the UK so why not in another European Union country, the UK would pay the bill anyway.
Just because I am a few years older we get full cover paid by the UK government, is it age discrimination working the right way for me ? lol

Yes I make you right & in my case I paid into the UK system for 35 years but cannot recive an E121 yet, so should we need treatment the UK should refund the Spanish Health system for any cost incurred. As if we were in the UK we would of course recive treatment without question, still lucky enough I worked for the council in my village for a piece so am covered now.

Title: Valencia monthly quota scheme

Text: The Valencia monthly quota scheme has been approved and was published in the Diario of the Valencia Govt on September 29th. It will come into effect one month from this date. All the details we have are published on the UKinSpain website.

For each customer who is currently registered under the old scheme i.e. those who have SIP cards with the word 'DEMAND' on them, you will have 20 days from Nov 1st until Nov 21st to apply to join the new scheme without having to present any supporting documentation e.g. padrón/residencia. Any new applicants will also be able to apply from Nov 1st but will need to present the supporting documentation requested by the Valencia Regional Health Authority. The health authority has informed us they will write to all customers affected by these changes. They will also provide details of where to obtain the application form to join the new scheme.

Please note - ALL queries must be directed to the Valencia authorities as we do not hold any more information that that published on our web site or contained in this post. They can be contacted on the free phone number 900 662 000.
