With your health insurance policy you can be treated in other countries as the insurers have agreements with international health centers, something that allows you to be treated if you have any emergency or medical problem during your stay abroad. This, in many cases, occurs without additional cost. In addition, to this is added that, in case of an accident and you have to urgently return to your place of residence, the insurance covers the repatriation or transfer of a relative where you are.

Dental care: This area may interest you a lot given the costs of private dental centers and the reduced coverage of public health in this area. If you have a private health policy, you already have access to some services and discounts on dental interventions. In addition, there are dental coverages within many of the private health insurances that cover services such as cleaning, fillings, splint or x-rays.
