Expat Healthcare Advice

To seek a university hospital and or doctors associate with one. To ask the locals for references.

Emergency Medical Care

Ospedale Maggiore - 5 minutes There is usually a long wait (from 5 - 10 hours) in the ER. Excellent care. Public hospital San Orsola - 10 minutes There is usually a long wait (from 5 - 10 hours) in the ER, however they also have a special ER for eye problems and the wait is usually between 2 - 4 hours. Excellent care. Public hospital Rizzoli Orthopedic Istitute 15 minutes The wait in ER can be anywhere from 1 to 6 hours because they specialized in orthopedic trauma. Any kind of trauma involving internal organs is referred to one of the other hospitals. Care is good but I have been told that the other hospitals are good as well.

Prescription Medicines

Yes. I get them from the local pharmacy and I need a prescription to get them. As I have a chronic condition and a low income the NHS passes them to me for free. However there are some medicines which are I need to pay for and on the whole are not economic. If you wish you can get some generic brands which either cost much less or sometimes pass for free.

Expat Health Insurance in Italy

I don't have health insurance for medical problems but only for problems resulting from an accident so I can respond to the first part of the question. Regarding the cost of medical care, if you go through the NHS the costs are contained and very reasonable, but should you use a private doctor/clinic the costs are similiar to the US. Alway depending on the expertise of the particular doctor.
