We are with Sanitas, so far it's been a good service, you will find agents for the Costa del Sol online, and their choice of services and prices online are in English unfortunately the app isn't. There are different accounts with or without copayment and with or without dental cover. We have been to the clinic in Nerja and Rincon de la Victoria who also take other insurance companies however waiting times have been short, you can see a doctor the day you go and the wait for an MRI was a week, pretty good, we thought the price we paid this year was good for the service that my husband has received so far, for a slipped disc in his case. I don't know how good your Spanish is but medical matters are probably a bit complicated in a second language but all the doctors and consultants speak good English.
