Do I need Medical Insurance?
Students from EU countries are entitled to free medical care in Italy if they have a European Health Insurance Card which will ensure access to state provided health care. They should apply for a EHIC to the local health authority in their home country before coming to Italy.
Students from non-EU countries should enquire with the authorities in their countries to find out if they are insured during a stay abroad for study purposes; if they are not covered,it is advisable to arrange health insurance.
