Private Healthcare and Insurance
The public health system is excellent but many Italians and expats often supplement their public healthcare with a private one as well. Dental care in particular is a popular reason for obtaining private health insurance. Priority treatment for various services is a huge bonus as well.
UniSalute offers private health insurance at a reasonable cost. If you’re interested, reach out to Nicolò dell’Olio at [email protected].it. Nicolò speaks English and is happy to help. Bologna Living is not a partner of UniSalute.
