Yes, it's the with me and my wife. If your annual income is less than a certain amount (18.000 € ?) prescriptions are free. If over that figure, you have to pay 10%.

Having said that, both of our Tratamientos Vigentes say aportación 10%, but the farmacia doesn't charge her, only me, so it must be stored in the system somewhere.

Prescriptions should be free for pensioners but is dependant on the income that they receive, above a set figure a percentage is due to be paid.

10% is the state figure for pensioners' prescriptions, although the present government said last June that they intended to make them free nationally.

Valencia however introduced a law a few years ago allowing free prescriptions for pensioners with income under €18,000.
