Cover & Services of Sanitas Premium 500
The Sanitas Premium 500 is a mixed policy designed for those that need the best cover in Spain plus the ability to choose where to receive treatment abroad.
This plan covers you fully when using the Sanitas network of doctors and hospitals in Spain. When using the Sanitas network, you simply present your membership card at reception when you attend an appointment and all costs are taken care of. There are no co-payments or deductibles. If you wish to use doctors and hospitals outside of the network in Spain and internationally, then you use the reimbursement part of the policy. You may use any doctor or hospital of your choice, pay the invoice, submit your claim to us and receive 90% of the costs back. The cover provided for this purpose is 500k per person, per year.
As a member you will get exclusive benefits not found in similar policies offered by other providers including full dental (Sanitas Dental), 50 % reimbursement for drugs or medicines prescribed by your Sanitas doctor and income protection when you are hospitalised.
The Sanitas Premium 500 is also suitable if you are thinking of transferring your cover from BUPA U.K. or BUPA Global. For more information on BUPA transfers please click here
