All European Erasmus students have to travel to

Italy with their European Health Insurance Card.

The European Health Insurance Card, replacing

paper forms such as the E111, gives access to

immediate necessary care and doctors under the

same conditions as nationals of that country.

http://ec.europa.eu/social/main.jsp?catId=559&langId=en

 Students coming from non-EU countries are strongly

recommended to get hold of an insurance policy

certified, translated by the Italian Diplomatic

Representative abroad: in order to get the Residence

Permit they are in fact required to have an Health

Insurance for the entire duration of their stay in Italy.
