What difference is there between the Asistencia Sanitaria Plus health assistance policy and the expense reimbursement policy?

With Healthcare Plus insurance, the insured can choose professionals of all specialties and medical centres from a medical guide without having to make any payments, except for any services that have an excess. Reimbursement insurance allows the insured to choose the professional or centre freely, with the insured paying for the care they receive first.

When do I have to register a newborn child?

The newly-born children of the insured person will be included in the policy from the moment of their birth in identical conditions to those contracted by the insured person, not counting any grace periods other than those that were applicable to them and providing that the following requirements are met:

  • That the inclusion of the newborn in the policy is requested within 10 business days from the date of birth by completing the application form.
  • The insured (father or mother) joined at least 8 months prior to the birth.
  • If these requirements are not met, the inclusion of the newborn will be subject to the insurance company's acceptance and contracting conditions, and the corresponding grace periods and exclusions may apply. If the newborn has any congenital illness or malformation, Mapfre guarantees that it will be accepted as long as the mother/father registers 8 months before the birth.

Can grace periods be revised?

Yes, but only if the insured had contracted a health insurance policy. Grace periods shall be respected, except for the expenses of pregnancy, childbirth, abortion, study and treatment of fertility treatment and adoption. Membership must be applied for within 60 days of withdrawal from the previous entity, and a copy of the terms and conditions or health card, as well as the last bill paid, must be provided. The waving of grace periods does not imply the acceptance of any ailment, illness or accident prior to contracting or of a congenital nature.

What does access to the US hospital network include?

The administration needed for treatment of the insured person in a hospital in the US, with access to a wide network selected by the insurance company in that country, as well as reimbursement to the insured of 60% of the medical and hospital expenses arising from that treatment.

Every year, this amount will be reduced for each insured person by any amounts consumed, updating the remainder at the rate of the CPI. Great Cover will start to apply for each insured person once the limits for hospital and outpatient expenses have been consumed. In the case of use of the US hospital network, the insured persons who contract this guarantee will have 100% coverage. The Great Cover supplementary guarantee will only remain in place until the age of 70.
