I became a pensioner in March and have had to use the health service here for the first time recently. I am registered as resident in Le Marche and wonder how I stand re prescriptione etc. I have had 1 prescription whcih I have paid for (€3,85 - much less than the UK) and some blood tests which I have been told I will have to pay for when I get the results. I don't mind paying if this is the norm for people like myself here but wonder if my Doctor has not cottoned onto the fact that I'm now 60 etc. Any info?
