    The Portuguese state healthcare system is good... but private cover can be even better

    Sevim Besev - Monday, January 14, 2019

    Each New Year presents opportunities for new beginnings, and here at Ibex Insurance Services, we don’t doubt that this will be the case in 2019 for many of you reading this.

    You may have recently decided to take the chance to move to Portugal, for example. It’s certainly a sunny, picturesque and culturally interesting corner of Europe – but have you considered how your healthcare needs will be catered for while you are on Portuguese shores?

    We can give you the best standard of cover

    If you are a Briton relocating to Portugal, you should be pleased to learn that the Portuguese public healthcare system is much the same as the one you will be accustomed to in the UK, with the Serviço Nacional de Saúde serving as the equivalent of the NHS.

    As can be said of the NHS, there’s a lot to commend the state healthcare system in Portugal, including its provision of both hospital and local health centre services. However, it is not always free of charge, and in some parts of the country – such as rural areas and the islands – residents may have to travel some distance to find a public healthcare provider.

    Such factors – as well as a wish to benefit from quicker treatment and a greater choice about exactly when and where you would like to receive treatment – may lead you to consider the services of health insurance brokers in Portugal   

     like Ibex. We can give you a wealth of both standard and comprehensive plans to choose from, which means we can find a policy to meet your specific requirements as an expat.

    The complete English-speaking – and convenient – service

    Whether you pay a visit to one of our local Algarve offices in Almancil or Tavira,

    give us a call or even obtain a quote through our straightforward online contact form,

    we’ll provide you with a highly professional, responsive and knowledgeable service as health insurance brokers in Portugal.

    While you can find plenty of information on our website about the insurers that we work with and the plans they offer, our Health Insurance Specialist can assess your needs and match them to the policy that will give you and your loved ones the greatest peace of mind during your time together in Portugal.

    Don’t spend all of your time worrying about your healthcare arrangements as a resident of this beautiful and charming country. Instead, contact the Ibex team

    for advice, support and guidance, in the knowledge that wherever you are located, every aspect of our service is also in the English language.
