Good evening to everyone out there,
We are currently in the process of planning our move to Alcossebre, 30 Minutes from Castellon on the East coast between Valencia and Barcelona.
This is due to happen next March.
What I am a bit confused about is the Spanish Health System and would appreciate some help with it.
My husband will be backwards and forwards between Spain and England
I along with two children will live all the time in Spain with the children attending a local state school.
Will we need to get private medical insurance as we are not paying into the Spanish Social or is there something I may be missing that makes us covered.
I would really appreciate any advice and would also love to hear from anybody who has made this move to the same area.
Thanks

Lynn on here knows about this - I'll see if I can find her post when she went thru it all!!! But provided your husband is working in the UK and paying into the UK system (NI), then you and the children will be covered by a reciprocal agreement between the two countries - he can also claim child allowance from the UK - in his name, so if its in your name change it!!!
