Reimbursement of Medical Costs
As soon as you sign up for the general social security system (régime général), set up an online account on the ameli.fr website so that you can check your reimbursements, manage your account and download certificates.
After seeing a general or specialist doctor, you need to follow the steps (parcours de soins coordonné (fr.)) and declare your chosen doctor to the social security administration through your account on ameli.
If you are a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) holder (Carte européenne d’assurance maladie), you must call “3646”, request the international relations department (service des relations internationales) and make an appointment to have your medical costs reimbursed. You will need to present yourself with an ID, your student certificate and your bank account details (RIB).
