Keywords: Right to health | Grading of health protection | Patchy services.

This article aims to show how the legislator has outlined a regulatory framework putting forward a diversified regulation that goes from equal treatment for both citizens and non citizens to insuring a basic package of health services also to those people who are residing illegally (calling it a grading of health protection). And it is pointed out that an immigrant’s right to health is a preferential case as regards the concept of “social citizenship” that goes beyond the status civitatis as well as beyond the workings of equality which is supreme principle for everybody.
