Let there be light

Costa Blanca News, 29 | 05 | 2009 – Noticia

Labour party MEP Gary Titley has agreed to investigate the situations of many British expats and other EU-residents living in homes without an electricity supply or on a builder’s supply.

He visited Orihuela Costa this week to support the local Socialist party (PSOE) and to encourage residents to vote in the next European elections on June 7.

The conference was attended by more than 100 residents - mainly expats but also Spaniards - from Orihuela and Torrevieja area.

They spoke with Mr Titley after the conference and explained their dramatic situation for over two hours.

People also asked questions about healthcare for non-working early retirees living in Spain and disability living allowances.

Although Mr Titley has decided not to stand for re-election, he vowed he would look into the issue through his group in the EU-Parliament.

He reminded the issues are the responsibility of member states but the EU can raise questions and pressure the authorities about the matter.

Mr Titley admitted the matter was complex and did not make any promise of solving the problem.

The announcement came as residents of the apartments in El Pinet urbanisation in La Marina de Elche were cut off on May 20, leaving many of them also without water.

Mr Titley is collecting the details of all expats living with such electricity supply problems to look into the issue properly.

He asked them to send their names, the urbanisation, contract numbers with Iberdrola (if any) and how many expats are affected to ¡ Esta dirección de correo electrónico está protegida contra los robots de spam, necesita tener Javascript activado para poder verla ¡


CBNews consulted with the British Embassy on Thursday morning regarding healthcare provisions for early retirees, which confirmed there had been no further advance on what has been published to date.

Their website states: “Following a meeting with the Valencia healthcare authorities we are able to provide updated information on the new ‘monthly quota’ scheme. This scheme only affects those who were not covered for healthcare through an E121, E106 or by contributing to the Spanish social security system.”

    HEALTH CARE IN VALENCIA for EARLY RETIREES or other so called “Private Patients” under the new law “Ley 6/2008, de 2 de junio, de Aseguramiento Sanitario del Sistema Sanitario público de la Comunitat Valenciana”

    The promised Monthly Quota System has now been approved (25 Sept 2009)

    People under 65, actually resident in Valencia, whom so wish, may contribute 270 Euros once every three months to get State Health cover in Valencia with no restrictions on pre existing conditions.

    For those over 65 the rate will be 330 Euros once every three months. EU citizens with a valid E121 do not of course need to pay.

    The cover will extend to all of Spain but not the rest of Europe.

    Those people on a very low income can apply for free cover.

    I do not yet know the details of how and where to apply for this cover.
