For all the Intesa Sanpaolo employees (both in service and retired) and their families, the Group Health Fund, in existence since 2011, provides additional health benefits to the national health service, which are prompt and effective.
The Fund, which has over 200,000 members (employees,pensionersandtheir families), provides services for health treatments directly through its recognised network of services or, alternatively, by reimbursing health care costs incurred directly by the members themselves. Overall, in 2018 the Fund has provided services for about 145 million euro.
During the year, the Fund worked with the International Banks Division and the Intesa Sanpaolo Welfare Department to provide healthcare for employees of the Group's international subsidiaries who are not covered at present. A solution was identified for 2017 providing cover for more risks, through a healthcare policy for around 23,000 staff members at international subsidiaries of the Intesa Sanpaolo Group.

At the same time, a regular column with articles by experts and qualified professionals was launched on the Healthcare Fund's website, which can be accessed by all scheme members.
