Medical care in Italy Will Blue Cross work ...just in case???

Jump to last reply

My family and I are leaving for Italy at the end of May. I am approaching 3 score years and have some minor health problems that pop up at inconvenient times (kidney stones...) ....I have BCBS under our state employees health plan in NC. They will reimburse expenses overseas. but would Trip Health Insurance be of benefit for peace of mind? If so, has anyone tried a plan that has proved helpful in Italy. What is the health care like there? I will be near Venice and in Rome. Are there any tips or guidelines that I should follow there in the event I need medication or treatment?
