Question:

Who are the private health insurers in Portugal and how much should it cost?

Answer:

 

The main health INSURERS in Portugal are:

Tranquilidade
Fidelidade – Multicare
Medis
Mapfre
Zurich
Allianz

Portugal is rich in Health Plans that are very often sold as insurance but are actually good private health insurance schemes.

Examples are Medicare, CUF Saude etc.

As a rule of thumb – an insurance plan for adults with needed covers should cost 100 -150 euros per month.  You may also see health plans  offered for 5-10-20 euros per month, but these are more like discount cards than real medical insurance.
