Looking for a good Private Health Insurance in Andalucia ( Mijas Costa ).
Sanitas is expensive (Im 59), but I have been told about Agrupacio Flexicare which is considerably cheaper monthly payments and you only pay 12 euros when you see a doctor and 24 euros for any treatment or operation. Is this too good to be true..anyone heard of it please or any suggestions> Thanks.:(

I am a member of a semi-private Centro Medico where you pay a small monthly fee and get free instant access to a GP and cheap access to consultants. But it isn't part of an insurance scheme, and it doesn't cover costs of operations, scans etc. I don't need private insurance because I'm covered by the State health service.

I'm covered by the Andalucian regional health service but am also a member of Helicopteros Sanitarios. A fee of under 40 euros per month covers OH and me. This covers unlimited free access to a GP and home visits by a medical team.

You pay a fee for seeing a consultant and any further services such as scans etc. I have just paid 100 euros for a long and detailed consultation with a specialist and a further 280 euros for a MRI scan. This seems reasonable to me.

I asked for an appointment with the specialist on a Tuesday, got the appointment for the following day, saw the consultant, got sent for the scan the next day - I could have gone the same day.

This all seems excellent VFM to me...

I've used the regional health service for minor ailments and have had a minor op at the excellent Costa Del Sol Hospital Marbella so I have no complaints about that public service. It's just nice to have both types of cover and HS isn't expensive.
