1. OFFERED SERVICES
The ASUR n.9 (Azienda Sanitaria Unica Regionale) is the regional health authority supplying the standard medical assistance financed by public funds. Some treatments are free, others require your financial contribution (“ticket”). If you pay, please keep all the receipts, in the case you can ask for a reimbursement in your home country.
A family doctor, or general practitioner, is a doctor you can refer to when:
– you need general medical advice;
– you need a medicine that pharmacies are allowed to sell only with a doctor’s prescription (called “ricetta”), such as antibiotics, anti-inflammatory medications, etc.
– you need a prescription (called “impegnativa”) for specific treatments or checkup at Macerata’s hospital, such as a dermatologist’s visit, or a blood test.
Family doctors are only available at office hours, generally between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. from Monday to Friday. We suggest you to go to their clinics, or call and check their surgery hours (“orario di ambulatorio”) in advance.
Here is a short list of Macerata’s family doctors.

If you need medical advice out of office hours (that is after 8 p.m. or during the week end) you can refer to the doctor on duty, also called “guardia medica”. You can either call him/her at: 0733 231378 or go directly to his/her clinic in Via Santa Lucia 2, very close to Macerata’s general hospital.
In case of urgencies or if you need an ambulance, you can call the emergency medical service at 118 or go directly to the first aid station of Macerata’s general hospital.
SPECIFIC TREATMENTS AND CHECKUP
If you feel you need a specific treatment or checkup, go first to your family doctor’s clinic and ask him/her advice. If needed, he/she will issue the prescription (“impegnativa”) required for most of the treatments supplied by ASUR n.9. Macerata’s hospital has two main buildings: the general hospital, and the head offices of ASUR n.9 (also called “Distretto”). When you make an appointment for a specific treatment, you should always ask in which building you will have to go:

2. DOCUMENTS NEEDED TO ACCESS THE ITALIAN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM
PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE (non-EU CITIZENS)
If you want to access the Italian health care system and you are an extra-European student, you need a private health insurance policy against illness and accident. If during your stay you pay for treatments or examinations and keep all the receipts, you can ask your health insurance for a reimbursement in your home country. You will need the same insurance policy to apply for you temporary residence permit (“Permesso di soggiorno”).
ITALIAN IDENTIFICATION TAX CODE – “Codice Fiscale”
This code can be obtained for free at the “Agenzia delle Entrate” (District Tax Office) by simply presenting an identity card or passport. This does not require a great deal of time since the tax code is issued immediately, after filling in a specific form.

“Everything was destroyed: the power stations were destroyed, the mills stood still – wrecked and burnt down, just like machinery in the factories, the radios were silent and we had no electricity. A full day after the Germans had left […] we already had an embryonic electrical power distribution that allowed us reconnect to life.”
First of all, it’s very nice to meet you!
