Healthcare in all the Canary Islands 

There are many benefits to living in the Canary Islands; the climate, the food, the people but it is also true that some services may be limited or may not be available at all. The geographical factors
of living on a small island give rise to some widely acknowledged challenges and healthcare in the Canaries can be just such an example.


Do you live in one of the smaller islands of the Canaries and have no adequate health cover?

Do you need to take the ferry each time you need to see a doctor?

And what happens if you need to go to a hospital for an emergency such as an accident, for example?


ASSSA HEALTH INSURANCE is growing and expanding in the Canary Islands. With the opening of the new office in Tenerife the expansion process has only just started. We provide personalized service to all clients in the Canaries and have a large directory of doctors and clinics in Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura, Lanzarote, La Gomera, La Palma and El Hierro.
Within the medical directory you can choose from a GP to a specialist or you can take out a “Summum” (comprehensive) policy with a free choice of doctors and reimbursement of consultation fees. If you are living on one of the islands you can count with complete private health cover from day one.
At ASSSA we are specialists in the field of healthcare, caring for the health of thousands of people. Our company, established in 1935, is expanding in the Canary Islands and offering personalised professional services at the office in Tenerife.
