Certain hospitalisation costs, apart from those covered by your health insurance, must be borne by you.

These costs must be paid when you leave unless you have a supplementary insurance policy with a body that has a convention with the clinic.

These costs include:

• The fixed charge Insured Participation Franchise (Participation Assuré Forfaitaire – PAS) of €18:

Since 1 September 2006, a fixed contribution charge of €18 per hospitalisation is due in all public and private health establishments, for certificates for which the tariff is greater than or equal to €120 or for those that have a coefficient of 60. It replaces the “moderator fee” (ticket modérateur) in these cases. Some patients may be exempt from this fee, such as chronically ill patients or pregnant women.

This fixed charge to be borne by the insured patient or to be covered by a complementary body is paid back to the Health Insurance Fund by the facility.

• The fixed hospital fee of € 18:

This represents the patient’s financial participation towards accommodation costs incurred by his/her hospitalisation. This fee is due for all stays of over 24 hours in a public or private hospital. Pursuant to article 7 of the French decree of 31 January 2005, the fixed daily fee must be billed for each day of hospitalisation, including the day of departure.

This fixed charge to be borne by the insured patient or to be covered by a complementary body is paid back to the Health Insurance Fund by the establishment.

• The “moderator fee” (ticket modérateur):

This fee is the part of health costs that you must pay after the Health Insurance Fund has reimbursed your expenses. It corresponds to 20% of hospitalisation costs if the medical procedure is less than €120.

This moderator fee may be covered by complementary insurance policies and mutual funds if patients have these.

However, there are cases of exemption in which the Social Security covers 100% of the expenses:

  • from the 31st day of hospitalisation and beyond;
  • hospitalisation for a chronic disease (ALD);
  • an industrial accident the professional character of which the fund has recognised;
  • disabled patients, war pensioners, holders of industrial accident pensions with a disability rate of 60%.

• Fee supplements :

All doctors practising at the clinic hold a convention in sector 1 or 2.

Sector 1: these doctors are obliged to charge the fees established by the convention with the Social Security body. There are no fee supplements.

Sector 2: these doctors can fix their fees freely, but must do so using tact and due measure. For an operation, they must have you sign a quotation before operating.

This quotation must be presented, duly signed, on the day of your pre-admission to confirm that you have been informed and that you have accepted this quotation.

Certain complementary bodies will cover these expenses. Contact your organisation before your admission.
