Health Service

If you are a national from either an EU Member State or an EEA country or you are of Swiss nationality, you should have a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) Italian acronym: TEAM, obtained in your home Country from you national healthcare authority. The European Health Insurance Card ((EHIC) allows to receive medical treatment in another member state for free, or at a reduced cost. A patient contribution is required for prescriptions, medical examinations, oral and dental care.

Non-EU residents must arrange International Health Insurance to cover any cost related to medical treatment and admission to hospital. If allowed by the Embassy/Consulate, they can also purchase health cover through the Italian National Health Insurance upon arrival in Cremona. Please refer to Waitaly for further details. The cost is of €71 for 6 months or €120 for a year, according to your Visa validity. Higher levels of cover are also available.

Note: Medical cover is compulsory when applying for the residency permit.

Once in Italy, you can register to the SSN (National Health Service) at the local Health Unit (ASL), by paying 150.00 euros fee (subject to change) for one calendar year (1 January – 31 December). You will get your personal health card and choose a family doctor in Cremona.

If you are staying in Italy for more than 90 days, you must go to a Post Office (see details below) within 8 days since your arrival in Italy (or any other Schengen country you’ve gone through preceding your arrival in Italy), in order to get the Yellow Kit (Residency Permit application forms) needed to get your Residency Permit (which is a living permit). The Kit contains a series of forms you must duly complete and return to the Post Office together with the following documents:
  • Photocopy of passport (all pages - one page per sheet, only front),
  • VISA documentation and any letter issued and stamped by the Consulate (make additional copies)
  • A certificate of enrolment issued by Università Cattolica and stamped by the Consulate
  • Copy of health insurance coverage

Fill in the form (form 1, form page 1 to page 3) in capital letters with a black pen.
Do not close the envelope as the post officer will check all the documents inside.
