Je réserve ma cure

In France, thermal treatment is a recognised therapy, and is covered by national health insurance (Securité Sociale). It must be prescribed by a doctor, a GP or a specialist, (or a dental surgeon in the case of oral mucosal disorders), via the application form. The cure lasts 18 days.

There are also shorter treatments (6 days or 12 days) which are not covered by national health insurance. Find out more about these cures.



Insurance approved cures:

Key steps:

1. Prescription et demande de prise en charge

Your health professional fills in the coverage claim application paperwork with you.

  • Specify the name: La Roche Posay Thermal Centre, as well as the course of treatment.
  • Tick the box (if necessary) to request accommodation at the Colline Ensoleillée (hospitalisation).
  • Tick the box (if necessary) for dual therapy: dermatology + oral diseases (very effective due to their complementary benefits in the aftermath of cancers and other oral fragilites,
  • gingivitis...)
  • Fill in and sign the declaration of resources form; this will determine whether or not a part of the accommodation and transport costs can be reimbursed.
  • Send the form to your Social Security centre.

It is advisable to send this request for reimbursement as soon as possible so that you don’t wait too long to make your reservation for the cure. It generally takes up to 6 weeks for the reimbursement to be approved.

The validity of the agreement to cover costs

The agreement to cover the cost of a cure is valid for one cure only in the current calendar year.
Agreements issued from November onwards are valid for the entire following calendar year.

Reimbursements

Reimbursement procedures for thermal cures

Unlike thalassotherapy treatments, thermal cures can be reimbursed by the health insurance system.

Conditions for the reimbursement of thermal cures

Participation of the Social Security is subject to conditions, that need to be met by the spa and by the patient.

Thermal centre responsibilities

The thermal cure centre must be approved by the National Health Insurance for the prescribed treatments. The Société Thermale de La Roche Posay is approved for dermatology and stomatology (mouth disorders).

Patient responsabilities

The patient must :

  • Ask for a medical prescription from their GP (general practitioner or specialist) mentioning the course of treatment. In the case of oral diseases, the prescription may be made by a dental surgeon, and the dual therapy must be specified on the coverage claim application (CERFA form)
  • Apply to your health insurance fund for reimbursement, fill in the declaration of resources, choose an approved centre and book your stay with the spa...
    Carry out the entire cure (18 days) continuously. The cure must be followed in its entirety unless interrupted by the consulting physician or in case of a major impediment on the part of the patient.
     

Only one cure is authorised per calendar year (except in the case of burns, where two cures per year are reimbursed).
The duration of a cure is set at 18 days of treatment (i.e. 21 consecutive days) and the number of treatment sessions must be specified.

Reimbursement for medical expenses: open to all

The French Assurance Maladie covers medical expenses related to the cure including:

  • The thermal package for the actual thermal treatments: contractual rate from 453.67€, reimbursable at a rate of 65% to 100%.
  • The medical surveillance package at 149€, payable to the thermal therapist, reimbursable at a rate of 70% to 100%.
  • Almost all complementary medical insurance companies cover the remaining part, often in the form of a lump sum, (with the possibility of direct payment for some patients, which saves the need to advance costs).
  • Accommodation and transport costs may be covered at a rate of up to 65% of a fixed amount set by the medical insurance (“assurance maladie”), depending on resources, (e.g. annual income of less than €14 664.38 for a single person).

A specific case is made for people with long-term illnesses (cancer, burns, etc).

When it is related to a long-term illness, your cure and your medical fees, are covered at a rate of 100%, based on the contractual fees:
You can receive an allowance of 150 € for your transport and accommodation costs, under conditions of resources.

Expenses that are not covered by the medical insurance:

  • The co-payment fee: part of the medical expenses which is not covered by the Assurance Maladie.
  • It may, however, be covered by your complementary medical insurance.
  • Comfort treatments (e.g. treatments at the Spa Source).
  • Meals during the cure.
  • Accommodation if the patient's income exceeds the threshold (e.g.: €14,664.38 annual income for a single person)
     

Daily allowances

Daily allowances may be paid subject to income (e.g.: Social Security cap is €34,620) or according to their work situation (accident at work or work-related illness) or therapeutic situation (long term illness). If the insured has already stopped working during the cure, the daily allowance is maintained.
