Any recommendations please for companies or local agents who provide health insurance. For permanent Crete residents and/or for those who spend, say, 3 to 6 months in Crete per year.

We were with InterAmerican for several years, and they paid promptly and easily when we had to claim.

We are now with EuroLife, because they are cheaper - we haven't had to claim on this insurance (yet!)

You can try Elias Papaevgeniadis for a quote on 697 347 1638 (based in Chania)

Just wanted to point out that anyone with a Greek AFM and a permanent address in Greece will be able to join a health plan, even if the stay in Greece is temporary (i.e. 3-6 months).

These plans range form the simple basic ones, like the ones required for residence permit purposes, to comprehensive insurance plans offering cover for many thousand of Euros among other covers.

For more info on residence permit insurance plans you can have a look here:

For general tips and things you should be careful of, you can have a look here:

Thank you both for the info.

I'm intending to build a thread here for reference, so if anyone else has additional info or a recommendation, please add a comment. Thank you.
