Do you mean the Convenio Especial which means that people not receiving the state pension can pay 60 euros a month into the Spanish NHS , which will cover all their health care , but not prescription costs?
Now, with the pension age extended it will also apply to people over 65 in the future.
Over 65s pay 157 euros a month( i think)

If you were a tax resident before October (2012 I think), you can be put on the Spanish system at no cost.
Some ex-pats who were under the radar lost out on this.
