Remember to register yourself with the health insurance and to subscribe to a healthcare mutual!

In order to better prepare your academic year, think about making your healthcare mutual and health insurance arrangements. Having health insurance (or social security) is mandatory to carry out your studies.  On average, health insurance covers only 70% of your medical expenses. To access better coverage of your costs, you can subscribe to a health supplement (or Healthcare Mutual).

More Info

You will find two pharmacies on the campus where you can buy medication with or without a prescription: Pharmacie de Lozère (15 min walk) or Pharmacie des écoles (10 min bus ride, Place des causeuses in Palaiseau).

To purchase medication with a prescription from your doctor, you will need to present your "carte vitale" or your "attestation de droits" (ameli) in order to obtain a partial reimbursement from the social security; as well as your "tiers payants" card if you have a "mutuelle" insurance company.

If you have a carte vitale, the request for reimbursement is done automatically, but if you do not have one yet (new student), the pharmacy must provide you with a document ("feuille de soin") that you will have to fill out and send to the CPAM (primary health insurance fund) to request reimbursement.

Several specialists are at your disposal at the Health Center

Doctor Isabelle MERLI is present two days a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30am to 12pm and from 1:30pm to 6pm.

She only receives students who do not currently have a doctor assigned to the IP Paris schools.

To make an Appointment contact Ms. Elisabeth ROSSI - Coordinator of the Health Center: 01 69 33 39 31

You can find at your Health Center physiotherapists from Monday to Friday.
