Rare Diseases exempt from contribution in Italy



The Italian law includes a well defined list of rare diseases considered by the National Health System (SSN-Servizio Sanitario Nazionale) exempt from patient contribution. Only the low prevalence pathologies included in the list attached to the D.M./M.D. 279/2001 envisage the exemption from patient contribution to the healthcare expenses. The National Rare Diseases Register has been created in the Italian National Institute of Health (ISS-Istituto Superiore di Sanità) in compliance with the art.3 of the Decree. All pathologies included in the register refer to the institutional regulation of the national network of rare diseases and of the exemption from contribution to the healthcare expenses (G.U. n.160 " 07-12-2001 " Suppl. Ord. n.180/L). To verify if a low prevalence disease is exempt from patient contribution to healthcare expenses, read the M.D. 279/2001 attachments (listed by name, code or group) or search online the name of the pathology.
