Convenio Especial
#1
I have applied for Convenio Especial as i have now been resident for a year and meet all the requirements. I took all my documents to Centro de Salud in Puerto del Rosario and was given a date-stamped photocopy of Anexo 1, my signed application declaration. I expected to receive some further confirmation from Servicio Canario de la Salud to set up the monthly direct debit payment with my bank but after 5 weeks of waiting, nothing has arrived. Is this the correct procedure or should i have gone to auyntamiento or my bank directly with the stamped photocopy and completed the process there?

Unless things have changed since I registered (2017), there is no direct debit. Every six months I get a registered letter from Grand Can with six months worth of bills that I take to the bank and pay. Very antiquated I know. but it seems to work!

Hi Classic,

Not sure if we are talking about the same thing. The Convenio Especial is the Spanish state healthcare system which costs 65 euros per month and needs to be paid by monthly direct debit, in the same way as you would for private health insurance. I believe you would get a registered health ID card that should allow you to book an appointment with a local doctor or prove identity if you require a hospital visit.

If I remember correectly, it was a few weeks before I got a confirmation letter that I was accepted, and then I had to go to the health center to collect my card.

i have been reliably informed that process for acceptance for the Convenio Especial is now taking in the region of 4 months from your initial document submission at Centro de Salud. Guess i better try not to become ill before then Wink
