Might not be entirely relevant - but I read recently that some Hospitals in Spain
were getting bum slapped by the EU for not treating EU Citizens (as they are meant to, even if only for limited cover / treatment) but instead insisting on insurance. or cash up front.......not sure if that included emergency
stuff like broken legs or the more involved........I guess what I am saying is perhaps prudent for folks not to think that at least they will get immediate healthcare and can sort out the paperwork / money
later.....even if it was like that before.
No doubt the austerity measures have something to do with that..........but I guess the good news is that for Americans will kinda feel like being back at home.
