San Marino, officially known as the Republic of San Marino, is an enclave state located in northeastern Italy. San Marino is a member of the Council of Europe and is widely acknowledged to have one of the Council’s strongest economies with enviable low unemployment rates, no national debt, and an annual budget surplus. However, with a landmass of just 61 square kilometers and a total population of 30,000 people, San Marino is one of the smallest countries in the world. San Marino enjoys a Mediterranean climate with four distinct seasons. Culturally very similar to the regions of Italy that surround it, San Marino has a long and distinguished musical tradition. Citizens of San Marino enjoy one of the world’s highest average life expectancies – 85 years for women and 77 years for men respectively. Founded in 4AD, San Marino is reputed to be the oldest sovereign republic in the world. 

Healthcare in San Marino is provided through a universal health care system, as well as private healthcare to complement it. San Marino’s healthcare system is consistently rated as one of the top three in Europe. 

State system

State healthcare is provided through the Azienda Sanitaria Locale national health insurance fund. All employees must register with it upon starting a job, and upon registration, are issued with a health card and number, and are automatically registered with a doctor in their neighborhood. Employers pay a contribution for each employee, deducted from their salaries, while the self-employed must pay the full contribution. Employed persons’ dependent family members are covered by their insurance. Vulnerable people, such as the unemployed, aged, diabetics, and those on long-term maternity leave, do not need to register with an employer and are entitled to free treatment without paying contributions. 

The state health system covers most basic healthcare, such as hospitalization, specialized care, prescription drugs, pregnancy and childbirth, and rehabilitation services. 

Private insurance

Private health insurance is widely used, and there is a series of private clinics in the country. Private insurance grants shorter waiting lists than in the public system, a choice of one’s doctor, and more comfortable facilities in the hospital, with those who have private coverage entitled to their own single or double room, while those under state coverage must share a room.
