France: Health Insurance

During your registration at the University, you will have to choose a French Social Security (Sécurité Sociale), between two choices: LMDE and MGEL. Both offers the same services, but MGEL is closer to the university and accommodations. After the registration, you will have to go to their office and give your certificate of school attendance.

The social security offers you a 70% refund when you go see a doctor, as well as 20 to 100% refunds when buying medication or if you have to go to the hospital.
