  • My cure is prescribed by my GP or a specialist
He prescribes my spa treatment according to my pathology (rheumatology, phlebology, post-cancer of the breast) and provides me with the form of assumption of responsibility that I fill in with him. He also defines my spa resort: Balaruc-les-Bains. 

Please note that only the 18-day medical spa treatment (6 days a week / no treatment on Sundays) is reimbursed by Social Security. Shorter thermal cures, such as mini health cures (from 1 to 6 days of treatment) are not eligible for reimbursement.

  • My completed application for reimbursement 
I send it to my Caisse Primaire d'Assurance Maladie, for approval (allow about 3 weeks), together with my declaration of resources.

As soon as I receive my agreement, I check
