The sector of physiotherapists has now joined the National Health System and recipients are able to have a number of physio-therapies compensated by the System.
Recipients needing physiotherapy must first go to their personal physical or to a specialist for evaluation and then the said doctor will refer them for physiotherapy.
The patients can choose a physiotherapist from the list of GESY and arrange an appointment.
There are two kinds of references: the short-term one for three treatments within six months and a medium-term one for six treatments also within six months.
Adults can have a maximum of 12 sessions per year.
If the doctor and physiotherapist judge that more sessions are needed then they can jointly submit a request for exception, something that will be evaluated by GESY.
