Beware of Medical Insurance with a Spanish Bank

Posted on 15 October, 2018 at 10:00 Comments comments (0)

Beware of Spanish Banks and their medical insurance deals.

In Spain there are many Banks and Expat organizations who offer Spanish Medical Insurance via some of the big name Insurers.

We need to be aware that these Insurances are usually the same price or maybe a few euros cheaper per annum than buying it direct from the insurance company , but they do not normally offer the same cover as you would receive were you to insure direct with the Insurance Company.

Caixa Bank offer Caser Insurance, then Sabadell bank offer DKV medical insurance and a few large expat brokers offer similar big name Insurances via Sanitas, Assa Assisa Mapfre Axa. All the insurers will provide a trimmed down version of their insurance and leave the seller to put their own prices on the policy..



These large Organizations approach an insurance company promise the Insurer high volume of sales and negotiate a lower price policy and then negotiate it even lower by removing or reducing the cover. They create exclusions exceptions price caps and all the nasties we do not want to find in an insurance policy. Having reduced the cover substantially they then proceed to sell often never mentioning that its not the same product .

These type of  policies are called modality insurances. In these insurances physiotherapy maybe reduced to 30 sessions a year, heaven help you if you need rehabiltation after a serious accident requiring 120 physios in a year, Donor Tissues & Organs maybe excluded yet the policy mentions Surgery for organ transplant is included. You proceed thinking this clause includes the donor tissue or organ.

With the DKV Medical Insurance we sell there is NO COST LIMIT on treatment. You are treated until rehabilitated. The Sabadell bank DKV policy caps expenditure at 237.000,00 euros a very big difference to taking the DKV policy through our agency for unlimited cover.

If you are offered a cheaper cost for the same insurer it is almost definately a modality insurance lacking in cover as the Insurance Companies will not permit their fully comprehensive policy to be undersold for any reason

There are many people who have made the assumption that because its the same Insurance Company that they are getting like for like for 30 euros a year cheaper. Buyer beware........

The only 75yrs plus Medical Policy in Spain

Posted on 27 June, 2018 at 6:50 Comments comments (0)

The Only Medical Insurance in Spain for the 75 plus age group

We receive many enquires a month for this over 75s Medical Insurance and the reason for this is that there is no other insurer in Spain who will consider Insuring anyone over the age of 75.

In comparison to the DKV Integral Insurance it falls far short of the cover. This policy does not offer preventative screening and there are clauses where if you are injured in a car accident there is no cover.

This is an insurance which is not available in all of Spain's provinces. We are also quick to point out that there are very few medical centres that accept the Seleccion Medical Card and each year we see less and less location options. So there you have it an insurance that falls short of what is required for peace of mind. Yet despite this some people take the attitude some cover is better than no cover and decide to proceed with the 96,00€ per month that it costs.

In fact we prefer not to sell this insurance as it is not a great product. However we do so because it does suit some people who are over 75 that need to show the Government Authorities that they have health cover. We have also seen a number of over 75s use the Policy to obtain Visa or Residency despite the fact that it does have a 3 euro Copago (policy excess per claim) which essentially means that the authorities if being extra strict refuse residency/visa because it has a Copago.

So the upshot is that we will sell you this policy but warn you of the shortfalls from day 1.

DKV do still sell you a Normal Comprehensive policy if you are just under 75 and once insured as long as you pay you can continue the policy for your life time. If you are a particularly fit 75 yr old and not reached 75 1/2 years of age we might possibly still convince DKV to offer you a standard comprehensive policy. This would be at the Insurers discretion.

So the decision is yours. Not often you get an agent who does not want to sell a product but there you go we like to be honest and as I say for some people some cover is better than NO COVER
