How many days are you covered for hospitalization in your private health insurance?

How many days are you covered for hospitalization in your private health insurance?

Prolonged hospitalization constitutes a grave concern worldwide because it generates negative effects on the health system such as, for example, increase in costs, deficient accessibility to hospitalization services, an overload of emergency services, and the risk of adverse effects

The causal agents of extended hospitalizations found with higher frequency are a delay in the performance of surgical and diagnostic procedures; the need for attention in another complexity level; social-family situation, and the age of the patient.

 

When you take private health insurance don’t look just the price. Although all the insurance companies could be the same, the covers are very different between them as the days of hospitalization which is one of the most important covers. Sometimes a patient has paid the hospital room having covered the contracted days in his insurance policy.

What a ‘no deal’ Brexit would mean for healthcare of British pensioners in Spain

One thing that matters enormously to UK voters is the NHS. A “battle bus” emblazoned with a claim that the NHS would receive £350m a week if the UK left the European Union was crucial to the victory of the Leave vote in the June 2016 referendum – despite the fact that this central claim was widely debunked.

Among the challenges Brexit poses to the NHS, and there are many, is that it needs to get ready to receive a group of people whose healthcare is currently being paid for by the UK in other EU countries. Many are pensioners, and large numbers of them live in Spain. There are at least 100,000 retired UK citizens in Spain, according to official figures, though local estimates suggest it could be double that, or more.
