Do I need to bring my passport for the medical appointment?

No, usually doctors do not require to see your passport. It’s a good idea to carry an ID or a copy of your passport, so the doctor can get the information needed for the invoice, but it is not usually necessary.

Are there family doctors near me that accept my insurance?

With DoctorsinItaly you can book online and pay out-of-pocket, insurance payment is usually not accepted. However, your insurance provider is likely to reimburse you if you are covered. If you hold an American insurance, it is very likely that all physicians abroad are considered out of network, but this doesn’t necessarily mean you are not covered. Contact your insurance if you wish to be sure about reimbursement procedures. Insurance providers sometimes have lists of affiliated providers, but they do not guarantee English will be spoken, they are usually unavailable on weekends and holidays, and they don’t offer online booking. Find out more about prices and insurance procedures >

Can I pay with credit card or do I need cash?

Your appointment can be paid online with credit card, as well as PayPal and some debit cards. No cash is involved. Payment is made in advance, so there are no surprise bills.

Can I use my EHIC or Tessera Sanitaria to pay?

DoctorsinItaly lets you find and book vetted English speaking doctors as a private patient. EHIC and Tessera Sanitaria can only be used to access medical assistance offered by the Italian public health authority – the SSN. Find out more about public healthcare in Italy >

What is included in a consultation? Will the doctor give me medicine?

Doctors in Italy do not usually give you medicine, but rather a paper prescription that you can take at any pharmacy to buy your medications. The cost of most medicines is quite low, so your bill at the pharmacy is unlikely to break the bank.

Can I get a report in English?

Yes, you can ask the physician to write a report for you in English. It’s a good idea to get one in case you need to bring it to your doctor at home, or use it for your insurance.

Will I be seen at a hospital or a doctor's office?

It depends on where the provider you choose works. Some physicians will offer you an appointment at their private medical office, while others will propose to see you at a private hospital or clinic where they work. Either way, you will have a guaranteed appointment with a doctor who understands you and who will take the time to take care of you. Learn more about finding a hospital near you >

How much does it cost to see a doctor in Italy?

Each doctor sets their professional fees so there is no common standard, but most doctors charge between 80 and 250 euro. Some providers may charge more, for example an appointment with a chief physician at a teaching hospital can easily cost 350 euros. Other doctors charge less, especially in parts of Italy where the cost of life is lower.

Can I see a medical specialist instead of a general practitioner?

Yes, you can find all kinds of doctors through DoctorsinItaly. Whether you need a dentist, a dermatologist, an orthopedic surgeon, or an eye doctor specialized in laser treatment, we can help. The one thing all doctors have in common is that they all speak English and have an international mindset.

What happens if I need to go to a hospital?

DoctorsinItaly works with several hospitals throughout the country. We can provide a referral and coordinate the logistics arrangements at some of the best international hospitals in Italy. If you need to go to an Italian hospital where English is not spoken, the medical provider you see with us can help you with a report in Italian that the hospital’s staff and doctors will understand. Do not be shy in asking the doctor for help, they will be happy to assist you in overcoming language barriers.

Should I see a primary care doctor or a specialist?

A primary care doctor can help with many common issues, although what falls into the area of a specialist varies from one country to the other. General practitioners in Italy, for example, do not usually do pelvic exams or collect pap smears or swabs. They do not do ear wax removals and do not see children below 12. If you are not sure whether you need a specialist or a general practitioner, you can make a request without specifying, and simply explain in details your medical need. Doctors from multiple specialties will receive your request and propose to assist you only if your needs fall into their area of expertise.
