EU-students owning an updated European Health Insurance Card (TEAM Card) may access Italian Healthcare for first aid services and urgent procedures (surgery included) without paying any fees.

For ordinary check-up or consulting a Family Doctor you shall register at ASL (Local Healthcare Agency, based upon your address). In these cases a fee should be paid.

Check out the complete Guide to register in the National Healthcare System.

Non-Eu students must have a health insurance policy valid in Italy (both for applying for the Visa, and requesting the Permesso Di Soggiorno).

If you are a health insurance subscriber in your country, it could be valid also in Italy. You may check within the Italian Embassy before traveling if it is possible to validate it (strongly recommended).

Otherwise, you may enroll voluntary the Italian National Healthcare Service (Servizio Sanitario Nazionale), or subscribe to the INA Assitalia (Insurance National Institute) for having a private health insurance policy done.  Both are chargeable services.
