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.
