While 100% of the medical care budget must be paid in advance, if, at the time of discharge, if 100% of the budget has not been used up, the remaining deposit will be returned to the payers.
Likewise, if the medical treatment program changes during the treatment, due to patient's clinical situation, the deposit amount will need to reflect the changes accordingly. The budget will be reviewed and, if necessary, the family will be asked to increase their deposit before proceeding with further treatment.
We recommend payment by bank transfer or credit/debit card. In accordance with current Spanish regulations, cash payment may not exceed 10,000 euros. It is not permitted to combine this form of payment with other methods of payment.
