The Sanitas Avanza gives you comprehensive outpatient cover, including visits to GPs and specialists and simple diagnostic tests such as blood and urine tests and simple radiology tests. Complex diagnostic tests such as CT and MRI scans are also covered.
Simple therapeutic treatments are included such as the care of wounds, the injection of certain drugs, podiatry, home respiratory therapies and physiotherapy.
In addition to the standard outpatient services the plan also includes more than 400 outpatient surgical procedures - these are minor procedures that take place in a consulting room rather than in an operating theatre.
Being a new policy for 2023, the Sanitas Avanza incorporates "digital" services that include an online video consultation service covering both 24-hour emergency and routine consultations plus personalised health plans via video consultations.
Basic dental cover is also provided, covering consultations, cleaning, simple extractions and the treatment of wounds.
This plan is the perfect choice if you have Spanish Social Security cover, as it is a low cost way to rapidly access consultants and outpatient treatments. However, it will NOT cover you for hospitalisation or surgical admissions. If you need a network plan with hospital cover, please see our range of Mas Salud plans.
Please note: this policy is NOT suitable for residency / N.I.E. / Visa applications.
Outpatient treatment is covered but if you need to be admitted to hospital, this is not covered.
