Charge for Medical cards in Spain

Replacement of the SIP medical card will now cost patients 3€. 
According to a recent report the replacement of lost or defaced sip cards cost the department of health around 900,000 €. 

The new admin fee of 3 € which is already in place in Galicia and the Balearic Islands (where the charge is 10€)  came into force in the Valencia comunidad from January 1st. There is no admin charge for a  new application only on replacement or renew of the Health card, so keep it somewhere safe. .
