I'm not sure what you mean....

if you mean that the UK will stop issuing S1 forms in April next year for non-pensioners, then that apparently IS the case

if so, that's nothing to do with Spain - that's a new UK rule

Is it just me, or does this mean even more British will leave Spain?

Why should they leave Spain??

If they are here already then the changes will have no effect!

If they are pensioners here then the changes will have no effect!

The changes only affect people moving to Spain after March next year and then only for NON-pensioners. Put simply, early retirees will have to fund the first couple of years health care where, in the past, they might have had reciprocal cover via the S1.

exactly!!

although it MIGHT (& I suspect will) affect non-pensioners who have S1s because their partner is paying NI in the UK (or elsewhere) & they qualify for them that way. These have to be renewed annually, & the UK has no legal obligation under EU rules to issue them, any more than the S1s to early retirees, which they are stopping.

however, since Spain has just launched the 'buy in ' scheme, where you pay something like 60 a month for full access to state healthcare, that might help.

as snikpoh said, it won't make a difference for the vast majority already here

and it's not just Spain, either - they won't be issuing them to anyone in those circumstances, going anywhere

Hi Lynn, where do I find details of this 'buy in scheme' - they seem to have kept it VERY quiet?

Is that 60 per person or per family? Would it be 300 for us (5 x 60)?

I agree with Lynn, it clearly states its per individual. Having said that, as far as I can see here http://www.seg-social.es/Internet_6/...aria/index.htm it says that children receive the same cover as spanish residents, but I can't see how they register.

As far paying is concerned, its RD 576/2013 which you can find here http://www.boe.es/diario_boe/txt.php?id=BOE-A-2013-8190 its been in force since 1st September.

Just suddenly realised, you've been here since 2007, and i'd be surprised if you didn't register on the Registro de Extranjeros (the green certificate) before 24th April 2012. Assuming this is the case, and your income is below €100,000, then you would qualify for free heathcare under ley 1192/2012.
http://www.boe.es/diario_boe/txt.php...E-A-2012-10477


You just need a letter from Newcastle to say you have no rights to healthcare in the UK. The link i posted to the INSS, has a link to the form. Let me know if you can't find it.
