Healthcare for international students

Information for students with European Union citizenship (EU students) and students with non-European Union citizenship (non-EU students) on how to access health care and how to voluntarily register with the Italian National Health Service as a student.

Please refer to the information on the page Medical assistance for international students.

Attention: For Cesena and Forlì the methods of payment of the contribution provided for voluntary enrollment in the National Health Service and the choice of doctor of foreign citizens, including students, have changed. 

The payment of the contribution through the postal order to the regional current account is no longer envisaged, but the amount can be paid directly to this Local Health Authority (the amount foreseen for students is € 149.77 per calendar year). 

Foreign students, therefore, will be able to go directly to the one-stop shops of our company where they will receive all the information to make the payment required for registration with the National Health Service and the choice of doctor (automatic AUSl cash dispensers, cashiers, online payment, etc.).
