After a few of years of work, I finally obtained my Italian citizenship jure sanguinis and received an Italian passport last year. I am currently living in the U.S. and will be going to graduate school at Trinity College Dublin in the fall. As far as health care goes in Ireland, if I have a European insurance card from the Italian health care system I will be covered by the Irish system.
From my understanding, the Italian health care card has the European health care card element (called TEAM) on the back of it. Is it possible for me to obtain the Italian health care card from the embassy or a consulate in the U.S.?
