Optional Extras

The Classic Health Plan is by far our most popular product. 

Sanitas HealthPlan Classic is specifically designed for expatriates who are living in Spain and for those planning a move. We have a specialised multi-lingual network of doctors, specialists and hospitals, all of which are available to assist with outpatient visits, as well as inpatient treatment, surgery and hospital accommodation.

You are entitled to seek a second medical opinion which enables you to consult the most renowned international specialists to obtain their opinion on serious illnesses.

This plan is for all health eventualities, so it suits those with no other health cover. The Classic plan is by far our most popular cover. Like the Basic plan, it is very reasonably priced, so again there are co-payments on this policy. €12 for each visit and for each diagnostic test undertaken on an inpatient and outpatient basis, €24 for hospitalisation (per stay), €7.80 for physiotherapy. Co-payments in turn allow us to keep the premiums low for everyone year after year. If you don´t use your insurance you are paying less, but if you use it you pay a little more.


gtChoose from a wide range of professionals.

gt100% cover of medical fees, access to over 27,200 specialists and 517 private centres throughout Spain.

gtMulti-lingual client helpline including fluent English operators.
