When you arrive, you will be asked to show some proof of identity, proof of address and your EHIC card. Do not forget them otherwise you have to pay. If you are not a European Citizen, you should apply for a study abroad insurance that covers your healthcare.
The best time to go to is an evening Monday-Friday as it does get busy on the weekends.
The nearest hospital to university is Hopital Européen Georges-Pompidou in the 15th. It is only a few stops away on RER C heading in the direction of Boulogne Billancourt.
EHIC Reimbursements: If you’re in a public hospital, your EHIC card will cover most things. In serious cases, the cost of hospitalisation (tests, medication and surgery) should be covered. There may be things you need to pay for yourself but if it comes to a lot of money, the Institution may be able to help you with an emergency loan. If you show them your EHIC card, you will not need to pay anything upfront. Usually, they will deduct the portion covered by social security (your EHIC card) and then send you the bill for the rest of the money at a later date. If you need help with any forms, please let one of us know.
