In Italy, the public health service guarantees emergency assistance for anyone. Access to other medically necessary, state-provided healthcare services is given to Italian citizens upon payment of small fees (tickets) and, under the same conditions and at the same cost, to European citizens owning the European Health Insurance Card. The Italian healthcare system is organised on a regional base, so each region has different ticket prices and procedures. Participants from the European Union are recommended, before they leave their home countries, to take out their European Health Insurance cards issued by national health insurance providers for free. Participants from outside of the European Union are instead recommended to take out their own private health insurances before they leave their home countries too.
IMY provides additional basic medical services and assistance with the IMY doctor and the IMY psychologist. They are both daily available for basic information and consultations. In case of specific interventions or treatments, a small fee may be applied at a lower cost than the normal Italian private rates. Contact details can be found on the italymobility. com reserved area and appointments can be booked via the IMY help desk. IMY guests may also access assistance and/or interpretation for dealing with health professionals.
