On 2 June 2021, the General Court of the European Union delivered a judgment in State aid case T-223/18 (Casa Regina Apostolorum della Pia Società delle figlie di San Paolo v European Commission). It confirmed that the health care service activities carried out within the framework of the Servizio sanitario nazionale (SSN) - the Italian health insurance system - and managed by the regions, are not economic in nature, so that, in this context, public hospitals are not undertakings and, therefore, their financing by the social security contributions of the members and by State resources did not constitute State aid within the meaning of Article 107 TFEU.
