In Andorra there is only one agency responsible for regulating all medical coverage and social devices in the country. The Andorrana Social Security Fund, CASS for its acronym in Catalan “Caixa Andorrana de Seguretat Social”, is a very efficient and centralized simplified system. The Andorran Social Security was created in 1968 and currently covers more than 90% of the population residing in Andorra.
The social security agency is responsible for managing reimbursements for consumption related to medical and hospital expenses.

One thing to keep in mind is that if health expenses in Andorra are incurred before services not affiliated with CASS and the Andorran authorities, the reimbursements will be around 33% of the total amount.
The CASS represents a very important element of the public health system of the Andorran Principality. It certifies the residents of the country, and the people who have chosen to acquire Andorran nationality, the insurance to benefit from good quality medical care.
