By the paying in scheme I assume you mean the convenio especial. You can only go on to this after one year of being a resident. To become a resident you have to show sufficient medical cover (private in your case) and sufficient funds to support yourself. 

You'd have to have private cover for at least a year and then apply for the €65 per month per person health-care.

Not sure what the sufficient funds criteria is for a couple.

Wouldn't you have to be self employed with all that entails?

Have you looked into the tax situation and the financial and health requirements for residency?

there are loads of sites that deal with this, if you google
