Italian law requires that all non-Italian students living in Italy have medical insurance, whether they need a Permit to Stay or not. AUR works with EduAssistance to assist you in obtaining a high-quality health insurance that will fulfill your immigration requirements.
Under Italian law, emergency medical treatment is provided to Italian nationals and foreign nationals alike, regardless of insurance coverage. That said, any treatment received in Italian Emergency Rooms is subject to a fee. If follow-up care is required, the hospital will ask for proof of insurance. Policies on public hospital charges vary from region to region.
Private U.S. or other Non-European medical insurances are accepted only if the insurance company issues a letter summarizing the conditions of the policy, stating that it is valid in Italy, and clarifying that there are no restrictions on the validity of the policy
A copy of your national health insurance card is required. It is important to note that depending on your country of origin, the national healthcare you arrive with may not provide adequate coverage here in Italy. Because of this, we strongly recommend purchasing the EduAssistance health insurance.
