Default Italian Healthcare

I have been in Italy for 20 years. I have not found any problem whatsoever with the healthcare and the dental care is superb.

I totally agree with Geordie.

The WHO says Italy has (or had) the second best healthcare system in the world which renders farcical the claims that the USA does. The USA has some extraordinary facilities but the majority for the majority are substandard or frankly unavailable and/or unaffordable.

Twenty years ago I got food poisoning and went to the emergency room at the magnificent hospital in Venice. I, an American with no Italian health insurance, after a visit and consultation with a doctor was charged 10 Euros as I recall.

A French friend was in the USA when she broke her knee. Having no health insurance here she was billed over $150,000 for the surgical treatment and care. I rest my case.
