Assistència Sanitària insured persons are free to choose the family doctor, paediatrician or specialist they wish, out of those in the established pool of healthcare professionals.

Each insured person has a personal smart card to accredit their insured status and as a purse for the e-cheques needed to access care services.

The e-cheques are the patient's contribution to the cost of the service and costs 1.50 euros. The charges of e-cheques on the cards can be made in our offices, on the Internet, in the private area of the web page of each of the insured, and through the 'Assistència online' app, for mobile phones, in the 'e-cheques management' section.

To visit the doctor, take your card previously charged with e-cheques. One e-cheque is deducted for each visit to the doctor, and for analytical, radiological or other tests. At the surgery, the card is inserted in a computer terminal to record the healthcare and consume the corresponding e-cheque.

For some tests and therapeutic acts and for admission to hospital, prior authorisation is required from Assistència Sanitària.


The following services are not covered by this insurance:

  • Illnesses, pathologies, injuries or physical defects already existing or known at the time of taking out the policy, unless declared in the health questionnaire and expressly accepted by Assistència Sanitària.

Until expressly mentioned, any potential new therapeutic techniques appearing in the field of medical care are not covered by the policy.

Nevertheless, in keeping with its established custom, Assistència Sanitària will try to include them in the policy, so long as their usefulness and effectiveness have been properly demonstrated.
