Assistència Sanitària insured persons are free to choose the family doctor, paediatrician or specialist they wish, out of those in the established pool of healthcare professionals.

Each insured person has a personal smart card to accredit their insured status and as a purse for the e-cheques needed to access care services.

To visit the doctor, take your card previously charged with e-cheques. One e-cheque is deducted for each visit to the doctor, and for analytical, radiological or other tests.
