Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, monestary courtyard, Lisbon, Portugal – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingA reasonable private health insurance plan in Portugal would cost you between €40 to €60 (US $43.40 to $65.10 or £29 to £44) a month. If you go to a doctor, a regular consultation would cost you around €30 to €40 (US $33 to $44 or £22 to £29) after insurance. This cost is for people who are basically in good health and middle-aged.  A full comprehensive insurance plan is about €60 (US $65 or £44) a month. €60 is the minimum.
 
The cost of your insurance goes up depending on the clauses that you want to incorporate. For example, some insurance policies do not cover you abroad. A friend of mine pays €120 (US $130 or £87) for health insurance because he travels a lot and he wants to be fully covered when he is traveling in Europe. 
 
The cost of your insurance really depends on how far you want to go. If you just reside in Portugal and you just want basic insurance, the minimum you can get is about €60. There is no deductible. The insurance covers you from the first euro.
