From the United Kingdom:

I am 25, have had diabetes for 15 years, and have recently gotten a job in Rome, Italy. How does the healthcare system for people with diabetes work in Italy?


As a matter of fact, assistance for people with diabetes belonging to the EU is dispensed free of any charge through the Italian NHS. This includes: outpatient clinics or diabetes centers for visits, insulin, and related materials (meters, strips, syringes, needles, pens, etc). This network is efficient and scattered across the whole country.
