Thermal treatments available under the Italian National Health Service

Montecatini's Thermal Baths have an agreement with the Italian National Health Service.

All Italian citizens - following a medical inspection, opinion and prescription - are entitled to one cycle of treatments per year under the Italian National Health Service.  

 

Just submit the prescription issued by your GP or specialist of the local health authority (ASL) specifying the diagnosis and the kind of therapy. The authorisation issued by the National Health Service to receive free medical treatments is a valid document for a cycle of treatments.  

 

The thermal treatments can also be carried out privately, for example for those who want to benefit from an additional cycle of treatments during the same year or two kinds of thermal treatments during their stay. In this case special discounts are available.
