Healthcare in Madrid

Expats will find that healthcare in Madrid is supported by a large number of public facilities as well as a diverse private sector.

As is the case with all other regions in Spain, the national government provides basic coordination and legislation, and the regional administration is in charge of managing and planning public healthcare.

Free healthcare in Madrid can be accessed when an expat begins to pay into social security, a facility that can only be arranged by those expats with residence permits who have obtained an Empadronamiento and a health card. For working expats, this payment is usually arranged through an employer as an automatic deduction from the employee’s salary. Self-employed expats will have to pay into social security themselves to begin to receive healthcare.

There is an impressive range of public hospitals in Madrid, and a large network of healthcare centres and pharmacies, but many expats prefer to utilise private healthcare in Madrid. This sector eliminates the long queues that often plague the public system and provides individuals with more choice when it comes to specialists and practitioners. Expats will need to have private insurance if they wish to take advantage of these facilities.
