Rome, June 4 - More than 12 million Italians have
turned to some form of private health care, driven by long
waiting lists in the public system, says a report released
Tuesday.
As many as 61.6% of the 12.2 million Italians paying for
private health services blamed long waiting lists for their
decision, while just 18% said they thought they would receive
better care outside the publicly funded system, according to the
report by statistics institute Censis.
By far, dentists report the largest number of private
patients, with 90% paying their own bills.
About 57% of gynecological visits are privately paid while
36% of rehabilitation services are financed outside the public
system.
The report suggests that government cuts to the health care
system over the past two years are responsible for longer wait
times for medical care, driving more patients to pay privately.
