Non-EU citizens are requested to take out private health insurance before leaving their home country and to obtain a consular declaration of its validity for Italy. In order to get the Residence Permit they are in fact required to be in possession of a private Health Insurance for the entire duration of their stay in Italy.
Once in Pavia non-EU students who do not have such a private health insurance policy can enrol with the National Health Service. The subscription to the National Health Service offers a much wider range of services than other private insurance Companies. They will be assigned a General Practitioner (Medico di Base) and the costs for medical treatments in general will be cheaper. They will have to pay about 149,77 for the subscription, the validity of which lasts until 31st December of the year on which it is subscribed.
Once they have the receipt of the payment they have to go to the Health Local Unit-ASL .
