We asked expats in Italy if they have access to public healthcare in Italy. And, if they do have access, what is it like. They wrote...

"Yes, as a foreigner living in Italy, you will have access to public healthcare. The Italian public healthcare system is one of the best in Europe, providing comprehensive coverage for medical services, including hospital care, specialist visits, and preventive care. The quality of care is generally high, and the cost is relatively low compared to other countries. In addition, the Italian government provides subsidies for those who cannot afford the cost of healthcare," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Italy.
