I know this has subject has been covered a few times, but posts and information goes out of date.

We are looking to move to Portugal soon (from the UK/British citizens) and will need private health care. I am aware of Medis, but can anyone tell me the names of other private insurance companies please? I also believe that banks and other financial companies offer discounts and again, any information would be gratefully received.

Many thanks

Graham and Karen

Do you need Insurance because you will not qualify for the NHS here?

We should qualify for the Portuguese health service, but are investigating what the level and quality of care and treatment is versus how much we would have to pay for private insurance.

I know numerous people who have had to use the NHS here, and with only one exception they have all received excellent care. I had open heart surgery four years ago.

Thank you hartmill, it's good to know. A few more days research and if we are there before Brexit, then we should be eligible for the "NHS". Some Portuguese I've spoken to, have suggested that a small amount of private insurance is enough to get referrals and diagnostics done quickly. However we will wait until we get out there in October.
