EU students: The EHIC entitles its holder to the same treatment at the same cost as a national of the country of their temporary stay. In case you need to be seen urgently by a doctor, you must go to your nearest public hospital. The other option is to go to your local Primary Healthcare Centre (Centre d’Atenció Primària - CAP). If you have taken out private health insurance, contact the insurance company for advise on how to proceed.

EU students are covered by the Catalan Health Service (Servei Catalá de la Salut) for necessary treatment as long as they have requested their EHIC card before coming to Barcelona.
Non-EU students will have to contact their private health insurance for more information
