Spanish health system
#1
I have a neighbour who has lived here for 3 years, and has not joined the above system, he was apparently unaware he could but pays private insurance for him and his wife, he is 61 and she is a couple of years younger, he is currently paying €200+ per month for medication, in addition to his premiums, questions, am I right in saying he can elect to use the system and is there nay one with the experience of doing so?

60 euros a month to join the system, but the cost does  go up once you  get to 65 (hopefully someone else can tell us by how much) - 
so it depends when your state pension kicks in and you can recieve reciprocal free health care.

I was over 65 when I got here, and it costs me nothing, but whether pension age is a factor I have no idea, but thanks for your input.

As I understand it, those of us that don't reach 'UK pension age' until 66 - 67 will have to pay extra until we can claim both the pension and our free health care.
