The free healthcare enjoyed by expatriates in Spain could still be withdrawn, Euro Weekly News has reported.
In 2008 the Valencia Health Authority had warned it would end its free expatriate healthcare provision.
The health authority changed its mind after an intervention by the British Embassy in Madrid and reinstated the cover, but only on a temporary basis.
A new scheme, which requires expatriate early retirees to pay between 200 and 300 euros per month is in the pipeline, but its introduction has again been delayed.
"Meanwhile, the provision of free healthcare continues, but there is still the threat of it being withdrawn at any time," the news group warns.
An expatriate group most at risk from the ruling and deemed to have been suffering from pre-existing conditions has submitted a petition to the European Parliament asking for an investigation.
Expatriates may move to Spain for health reasons and could take up sport to keep themselves healthy – easy enough for those who like a round of golf, as the Costa del Sol has more than 60 courses for them to choose from.
