Voluntary health insurance [Law Decree no. 7352/2002]

Friday, February 1, 2002

Employers, liberal professions, and self-employed persons are excluded from accessing the NSSF. The voluntary health insurance scheme is thus aimed at filling this gap, benefiting employees who are excluded from mandatory schemes; employers and their relatives; people working in liberal professions; and self-employed persons. It also resolves the issue of social security of unprotected professions by delegating their coverage to the private sector and to the individual contributory capacity.
