Italian healthcare system

The situation of Italian healthcare system is dramatic: the local health Associations (ASL) have to pay more than 24,5 billion Euro to their providers. Lazio, Campania, Lombardia and Piemonte are the Italian regions with the worst situations in terms of debts.

The healthcare Institutions are usually obliged to pay their invoices by 60 days from the date of issue of the document. On the contrary, the invoices, as an average, were paid more than 700 days later. It seems that the ASLs effectively pay later but, on the other way, they bought products at a higher price from their providers and with a lot of differences among regions.

 

The healthcare system wasted approximately 30 billion Euro and it cannot be excluded that there are not written agreements among the parts so that the ASLs impose late payment to their providers in exchange of an higher price of the products.
