The Regulation is divided in four Headings, the first of which contains the provisions common to all types of interventions, while the next three contain specific provisions for each of the three types defined by itself.
 
Heading I Common provisions
Article 7 (Travel and accommodation expenses)
 
1. Travel and accommodation expenses incurred by the injured person / technopathic to go to structures other than those of the Institute, for the purpose of providing the interventions referred to in these Regulations, may be reimbursed according to the methods and within the limits indicated in the implementing circular.
 
To deepen Inail circular n. 7 of 28 January 2022
 
3. REIMBURSEMENT OF TRAVEL AND ACCOMMODATION EXPENSES Article 7 of the Regulations, in providing for the right to reimbursement of travel and accommodation expenses incurred by the injured / technopathic to go to structures other than those of the Institute, extends it to cases in which the structures in question have been identified by the injured / technopathic patients themselves, in exercising their freedom of therapeutic choice. In fact, it is not specified that the injured / technopathic patients must have been sent by the Institute to these facilities. As by express reference to Article 7 of the Regulations, the methods and limits of the aforementioned reimbursement are governed by paragraph 11 of this circular. 
 
11. ACCESSORY ECONOMIC FEATURE The Institute reimburses the travel costs to the injured person / technopathic who has to go to a place other than his home for prescription, supply, testing, adaptation, renewal and repair of the devices referred to in Heading II of the Regulations, for health checks and treatments or for the provision of support interventions referred to in article 19, paragraph 1, letters a), b) and c).
Reimbursable travel expenses are those incurred and documented for the use of public transport. The use of taxis or private means of transport is allowed when required by the state of health of the injured person / technopathic as ascertained by the Medical Director of the Institute or by the insufficiency of public transport or those made available by the Institute itself.
 
In case of use of private means of transport, the reimbursement of the related expenses will be made with the current criterion for the reimbursement due to the supervisory officers of the Institute in the exercise of their functions.
In case that the state of health of the injured person / technopathic is incompatible with the use of other means of transport, the use of an ambulance is allowed. Except in cases of necessity and urgency, the use of private means of transport, taxi or ambulance must be previously authorized by the territorially competent office.
 
The right to reimbursement of travel expenses is also recognized when the injured person / technopathic has to go to the facilities of a supplier identified by the same in the exercise of freedom of therapeutic choice. In these cases, the Institute, having assessed the need for the trip, reimburses the costs within the limit of the costs that the injured person / technopathic would have incurred to reach the facility authorized to provide the intervention closest to the place of residence. The aforementioned right to reimbursement does not compete for the indirect supply of the devices referred to in Article 8, paragraph 1, letter c), of the Regulation.
 
The Institute, where necessary due to the distance of the facility providing the prosthetic assistance from the injured / technopathic's place of residence, also bears the expenses incurred and documented for the accommodation. If the stay of the injured person / technopathic cannot be guaranteed at an Inail residential facility, the Institute is directly responsible for paying the living expenses to the external accommodation facility where the injured person / technopathic person was housed, identified according to proximity and accessibility criteria for the disables.
 
The same procedures also apply to any authorized companion as specified below. In cases in which the injured person / technopathic goes to a provider identified by the same in the exercise of the freedom of therapeutic choice, the Institute reimburses the accommodation expenses incurred and documented only in cases in which said stay would have been necessary even if the injured person / technopathic had gone to the facility authorized to provide the intervention closest to the place of residence. The aforementioned accommodation expenses are reimbursed, except in cases of necessity and urgency, subject to the authorization of the territorially competent office. The expenses incurred and documented for meals are also reimbursed.

The reimbursement of expenses for accommodation and meals will be made, however, within the limits of the provisions in force for the treatment of mission of non-managerial staff of the Institute. The reimbursement of travel, accommodation and meals expenses referred to above can also be authorized for any accompanying person, if the Medical Director of the competent office deems it necessary to be present in relation to the psychophysical conditions of the injured / technopathic, regardless of ownership of the allowance for ongoing personal assistance. The documents certifying the expenses actually incurred must be sent to the territorially competent office for the purpose of the subsequent disbursement of the reimbursement.

DEFINITIONS AUTHORIZATION for the provision of the intervention: it is provided for in the case of delivery in an indirect form and consists in the authorization of the external supplier to proceed with the delivery.
