Private healthcare providers in the Pinoso-Monovar area
One of the things that moving to Spain includes, and I´m sure it's something most of us dread, is sorting out paperwork. Obviously getting the main ones are important, like NIE and TIE, but another thing that is especially important in life is our health. So, although when you become a resident in Spain, you are entitled to Spanish healthcare, before all this, you should investigate being covered by something just in case something happens to you or you need medical care, whether it´s just something general, or if you need something a bit more serious. If you don´t have any healthcare in Spain, and something happened to you, hospital and medical fees aren´t cheap in this country. So it´s a good thing to investigate private healthcare.
Please note, that most of these companies have online tests so you can work out roughly what insurance you need and what price.
And take note, that all these insurance companies also offer other insurance policies, and a lot of these can be done over the phone or via email. It is not always necessary to go to their office.
Here are some of the local insurances that cover private health care:

As everybody is different and everybody has different needs, it's best to contact them directly and explain what your situation is, and they will offer the insurance that suits you best.
And like we mentioned before, if you want to know roughly how much it would cost, most of these websites offer an online mini test to work out how much each policy would cost monthly or annually. So what are you waiting for?

Most of them cover car insurance, home insurance, life insurance… etc. It’s worth looking into.
