When you are travelling abroad it is great to have the peace of mind that your healthcare needs will be taken care of, wherever you are. Travel assistance is included in all our policies, with no need for you to pay an additional premium and this incorporates a helpline which is at your fingertips 24 hours a day.
What is included?
Sanitas provide you with cover to a limit of €12,000 per person, per claim, when you are travelling abroad. You are covered for both accidents and illnesses, as long as these occur while you are travelling beyond Spain.
The following services are included:
What is not included?
Charges made by physicians of less than €3
Spectacles, contact lenses, prostheses or crutches
Expenses attributable to illnesses or conditions that were already evident before travel (unexpected complications will be covered); treatments which have already been organised in Spain; treatment for pregnancies which arise after the initial 150 days of the pregnancy.
Healthcare issues which are a result of earthquake, flood, volcanic eruption, war, insurrection or uprising.
Attention required as a result of taking part in competitive motor sport
€10,000 per person, per claim.
If you are admitted to hospital by your doctor, then the additional accommodation costs will be reimbursed for the person who accompanies you, as long as they are also insured under your policy. The limit for these costs is €60 per day, for up to 10 days.
What am I covered for?
If you suffer an accident or illness when abroad and medically supervised transport is required, then the following transport will be arranged, taking into account which is most appropriate according to your medical condition:
Cover is provided for a relative to join you abroad if you have no direct relative with you when hospitalisation occurs and you are required to remain in hospital for more than five days. In these cases, the relative will receive economy air or first class rail travel on a return basis from Spain to the country where you are hospitalised. They will also receive up to €60 per day for up a maximum of five days to cover accommodation and other costs in relation to the emergency visit.
In these circumstances, the transport and hospital you will be taken to will be decided by the Sanitas physicians.
What is not included?
In the event that you are subject to prosecution or imprisonment in the country of travel, Sanitas will issue a payment to cover the demand for bail, issued by the local authority, up to a limit of €10,000. However, these funds must be repaid to Sanitas within two months and a guarantee of repayment may be required from you before the funds are issued.
What am I covered for?
In the event that drugs and medications prescribed to you are not available where you are, they will be delivered to you from an alternative source and this will be arranged as part of your cover.
