    1. generic, provided by the general practitioner and free
    2. specialist, prescribed by the general practitioner and then to be booked at the competent local ASL. It is subject to payment of the service fee.
    Foreign students from outside the EU to benefit from the services of the Italian National Health Service must first register with the Service, paying the sum of EUROS 149.77 per calendar year (from 1 January to 31 December).
    To register, you must go to the competent local ASL.
