Renewal of SIP card

Post by JessicaH »

Ours is due for renewal end of July.
Someone in my area said their local medical centre did it for them !
Now that would be wonderful, but as with most info not sure if this is correct, or do we have to make an appointment at our local Salud office.
If so do we have to go through same rigmarole of providing all other paperwork and proof of income.

We were told to go back to our health centre before ours need renewing, would probably be worthwhile calling in at yours and asking what the procedure is?
Never forget the pie you were baked in!

That is what I was thinking. Hopefully as permanent green card, tax residents, it should simply be a case of automatic renewal.
Cheers Minerva. :tup

Dropped into Sultellana health centre today
Our card won’t be there until August.
Can either call in then to check or they will phone you.
It was interesting because interview room is no longer there so am wondering does this mean because of Brexit future retirees from UK will have to have private medical insurance even for emergencies.
