I had thought that the tessera sanitaria was intended to replace the old yellow card but it seems I still need one to register with a doctor. And the yellow card lasts only as long as my current contract of employment.

Thanks for this - we're certainly talking about the same thing! And we are EU citizens (UK). We have, however,  been here for more than 5 years and still they only make the card out for the duration of my contract... Since I work mainly on short term contracts, I end up renewing the thing every couple of months - and if I find myself without a contract - even for a couple of weeks - then I have to register as 'unemployed' (though I get no benefits etc) - which only lasts a set time - then I have to unregister as unemployed - and so it goes on. Maybe next time I'll point out the 5 year limit and see if anything longer term can be done. At the 'sportello', though, they don't seem to know very much about us 'foreigners' - do you know if there is a bigger office or something I could contact for a higher level decision? Any reduction in bureaucracy woud be much appreciated!!! Thanks.
