Healthcare in Benahavís
An EHC, (European Health Care) card is necessary to receive healthcare in Spain if you are just visiting, this is obtainable from the health service of your country of origin provided it is within the EU. Private doctors will not accept this card and either direct payment or an insurance policy is needed to cover these bills. Expats can receive healthcare for free provided that you are paying social security.
