Medical Assistance

Most Doctors speak some English. It is wise to apply for an EHIC card which replaced the E111 before travelling. It is free and offers cover in the EU. Here is the link for applications:

http://www.nhs.uk/NHSEngland/Healthcareabroad/EHIC/Pages/about-the-ehic.aspx

If you visit a doctor or hospital they will provide you with a “feuille de soins” to enable you to claim reimbursement through the local CPAM office (Caisse Primaire D‘Assurance Maladie). Ask the doctor for the address or contact us for assistance. You will need to provide the treatment form (feuille de soins) with stickers from the medicine packaging, copies of receipts and prescriptions, a copy of your EHIC, your address of residence and your bank details, including IBAN and BIC. Confirmation of your refund will be sent to your home address.

Standard consultation fee is €23.
