Back in 2012, a new law came out which ordered the regions to charge a fee (between €5 and €10) per use of an ambulance.
The same law introduced fees for orthoprosthetics and dietary therapy, things that were previously free.
However… the regions have been feet dragging, and the law hasn’t been applied in most of Spain.
So the Ministry of Health has today announced that it will withdraw the law. Plans to introduce charges for other parts of the health service continue.
