Health benefits

Practical information


Health benefits for tourists in Spain may vary according to their countries of origin. Tourists from the European Union and countries with the Community regulation (Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Switzerland) will need their European Health Insurance Card (TSE) to receive health care in the Region of Murcia and the rest of Spain. Doctors and private hospitals in Mazarrón and the Region of Murcia do not accept the European Health Insurance Card. If you want to have health care in this type of centres, you should bear the cost or contract an insurance policy covering such service. If you forget your European Health Insurance Card, you should cover in advance the costs for the hospital, doctors and chemists and ask your insurance institution for the reimbursement for medical expenses presenting the corresponding invoices. Tourists from Andorra, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Paraguay and Peru need a special certificate from their country of origin to receive health care in the Region of Murcia and the rest of Spain.

If you forget such certificate you should cover in advance the costs for the hospital, doctors and chemists and ask your health insurance institution for the reimbursement for medical expenses presenting the corresponding invoices.

If tourists come from countries different from the ones above, they should bear the costs for the health care services, for such reason it is recommended to contract a health insurance policy.In any case, we recommend you to ask for information from your health insurance institution, current requirements needed for receiving health care services in Mazarrón / Region of Murcia / Spain.No vaccinations against illnesses are needed to travel to Spain, although, the same as everywhere in the world, it is recommended to stay up-to-date on vaccination, especially the tetanus immunization if in contact with the nature and rural environments.

Medicines can be bought at pharmacies, whose commercial identification symbol is a green cross. It is worth mentioning that appropriate medical treatments should be prescribed by doctors.
