Using the services in Spain

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.

The e-cheques are the patient's contribution to the cost of the service and costs 1.50 euros. They can be purchased at any branch of Assistència Sanitària Col·legial and from the 'la Caixa' ATMs.

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. At the surgery, the card is inserted in a computer terminal to record the healthcare and consume the corresponding e-cheque.

For hospitalised patients, the card is only needed for admission and discharge formalities. On discharge, the e-cheques corresponding to the medical attention received during the stay in hospital are consumed.

For some tests and therapeutic acts and for admission to hospital, prior authorisation is required from Assistència Sanitària.

Reimbursement of expenses incurred outside Spain

The service used must be reported within at most seven days from the moment it occurs.

The report must contain the following information:

  • Duly completed expense reimbursement form.
  • Original official invoice for the cost of out-of-hospital and hospital healthcare, along with the corresponding receipts confirming payment.
  • Original medical report of the services received.


Having received these documents and having made the relevant checks, Assistència Sanitària will reimburse the amount guaranteed within 15 working days.



The following services are not covered by this insurance:

  • Illnesses, pathologies, injuries or physical defects already existing or known at the time of taking out the policy, unless declared in the health questionnaire and expressly accepted by Assistència Sanitària.
  • In dentistry: fillings, orthodontic work, prosthesis, etc.
  • Plastic surgery and aesthetic treatments.
  • Contraception, sterility treatments and assisted reproduction techniques.
  • Transplants of organs, tissues and haematopoietic precursors.
  • Tests for early detection of congenital illness (except for amniocentesis).
  • Medication during in-hospital or day hospital cancer treatments and medication for non-hospitalised patients.
  • The contrast media needed in radiological tests on non-hospitalised patients.
  • Any type of prosthesis and anatomical or orthopaedic pieces.


Until expressly mentioned, any potential new therapeutic techniques appearing in the field of medical care are not covered by the policy.

Nevertheless, in keeping with its established custom, Assistència Sanitària will try to include them in the policy, so long as their usefulness and effectiveness have been properly demonstrated.
