The above-listed thermal treatments can be covered by the Italian National Healh System: a medical prescription or a “red” paper prescription provided by a general practitioner or a pediatrician, or AUSL specialist, all issued by the Italian National Health Service.
Each patient is only entitled to 1 cycle of spa treatment, once a year (excluding specific cases of disability), thus only paying a Ticket fee for non-exempt patients.
Treatments paid for by the Italian National Health Service must be completed within 60 days from the treatment start date.

The Admission Medical Examination is compulsory – yet free of charge – for those who have a prescription from the Italian National Health Service for Spa treatments.
The Health Department recommends submitting your recent medical documentation for in-depth diagnostics, to define the best tailored therapy based on individual requirements.
GP and specialist doctor’s advice will be considered.
Thermal treatments give better results if carried out for at least 12 days.
Thermal therapy is more effective when repeated over several consecutive years.
Several courses of treatment are recommended, within the same season, with at least 1 month break.
Harsh temperature changes should be avoided during thermal treatments and it is recommended not to leave the thermal environment until the body reaction is positive.
Treatment information is strictly personal and cannot be transferred to other people and no refunds will be made for any reason.
Declarations proving treatment periods for clients who require special leave from work are issued by the secretariat once the treatment has been completed.
Declarations for insurance purposes or for reimbursement from personal health insurance funds must be requested before starting the treatment.
