If you don’t, you’re not alone. Unfortunately, many people are not covered and could face a hefty bill if they need treatment.

According to a health care report by insurance analyst Ian Youngman, there are more than 50 million expats and 232 million people who live in a different country to the one they were born in. However, one worrying statistic suggests that almost half of these people are not covered by international health insurance although they may have domestic health insurance.

Pensioners and some other people living in Spain, either permanently or as second-home owners, will be covered by the S1 form where the UK pays for your health care in Spain- but many of us are not entitled and need to find the best way to pay for health care.

Expat health insurance or international health insurance is designed for people who live and work abroad. You can take out a worldwide plan, or have a specific plan for Spain.
