Nonez asked Saturday:
what cover have you if any ??
i have been trying to get good info on reasonable medical insurance to cover us if we went to live in bg with not much success.we went over for a month at the end of august and while there talked to a lot of brits who are there pemanantly and was supprised to find that none of them had made any provison with regards to medical insurance i can tell you i was a little shocked.the reason i an doing this post is that my brother age 47 none smoker lite drinker went to spain 2 wees ago and while there had a massive heart attack acualy died at on stage but was resuscitated ..to cut a long story short he had to have three stems put into his arterys and with out this treatment would not be here now .i doubt this sort of treatment would be available on the bg nhs and the cost to go private would be horrendous.he is back in the uk now and his doctor told him the cost to have one stem done in the uk would be 37,000 pounds and the cost of the air ambulance 100,000 pounds .his holiday covers 10,000,000.if he had not had this i dread to think what would have happened.i would be interested to know what provison others on here have made or is everyone just hoping nothing happens.??????????????
If you are over pensionable age you are covered here and if you are working or have a working company then you pay your NOI and you are covered. It is only those who move here permanently before pension age that are also not working that need to get private health cover, which is propably a minority of those living here. Idon't know if you can opt in to pay NOI if you are not working. Allianz do reasonable health cover at an affordable amount, and there are other threads about this.
