Hi everyone, One thing that I need to know is - if I am non resident in Spain but spend 5 months of the year there can I register with a local Doctor ? Will my EHC suffice or will I need private medical insurance? I need to know as ordinary travel/health insurance does not cover a stay of that long. Thanks.

strictly speaking, if you're here more than 90 consecutive days, you are required to register as resident - & would need private healthcare (or an S1 if you get a pension)

if you're here in several shorter 'chunks' though, your EHIC will cover you for essential & emergency care, though health/travel insurance is recommended
