Salud 101 Update, Clinica Rincon has changed hands: We are members of Clinica Rincon’s very useful Salud101 scheme which gives discounts on private medical treatment. One of its advantages is it does not refuse pre-existing conditions. We just found out that Clinica Rincon has changed hands and the scheme is now closed to new members. I have tried to get more information but the receptionists I talked to didn’t seem to know much. They think that existing memberships will continue and can be renewed, at least for now. Does anyone have more information, or can anyone recommend a similar scheme suitable for ‘topping up’ health service cover?
