We asked retirees if they have access to good medical care in Italy. They wrote...

"Health care in Italy is comprehensive and comprehensive, with universal coverage that offers citizens access to any form of public or private healthcare they may require. The majority of the Italian population has health insurance through their employer, local governmental health organizations, or private insurance plans. Healthcare services in Italy are provided by public and private healthcare providers, such as hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, and nursing homes. Moreover, there are a wide variety of specialists covering all fields of medicine. Italy is known for its highly advanced and rigorous healthcare system, and its doctors and specialists routinely perform highly sophisticated procedures and surgeries," said another expat in Italy.

"$387/year/couple will buy into the medical program for the EU. That provides ER services, most doctor visits and discounts on medication and supplies. We can walk to our hospital and have found an English speaking GP and excellent dentist in the next town. We can also take the train to Rome for exceptional specialists. I paid (insurance reimbursed) 150 euro for lab work which would have been well over 1000 in the states," wrote a member who made the move to Minturno, Italy.
