Registering at Health Centre pre retirement
We have had Private Health Insurance since we moved here nearly 5 years ago.
Hubby has hust been discharged from 3 weeks in Hospital (Parque San Antonio in Malaga) where he received first class care.
However, although he is now home, he still is unwell and, as part of his treatment, is on Anti-Coagulant therapy requiring blood tests every 3 days.
These can be done at the private clinic we use as our GP surgery in Torre del Mar but they do not cover the tests on our Insurance so we know we have to pay.
What we were wondering was is there any way of registering at the local health centre and paying them to do the tests rather than have to get taxis down to the coast and back as hubby cannot drive for at least a month?
As he is under retirement age we know we are not covered on the Spanish NHS - would just like to use their facilities and pay all costs incurred.
Can anyone come up with a suggestion?
Also - is there any equivalent in Spain of pre-paid prescription charges as Ians drugs on discharge cost 111 Euros. Thank goodness his Oxygen therapy is covered by the Insurance policy!
