Student social security

It is required for all students and guarantees partial or full reimbursement of medical costs.

As of September 1, 2018, if you enroll for the first time in an institution of higher education, you are not required to take any additional action to join student social security, because you will remain covered by your current health insurance scheme, generally under your parents or legal guardians.
If you were already a student in 2017/18, you are already enrolled in a supplementary student insurance scheme as your student social security management center and will remain in that scheme for 2018/19. You will no longer owe the annual fee of €217 and will be automatically switched over to the general scheme on September 1, 2019.

To ensure you receive your medical reimbursements, be sure to create an account or update your personal information at or in the Ameli application.

You will also have the option of selecting additional coverage to optimize reimbursement rates. Additional coverage is optional, but highly recommended if you are no longer covered by your parents’ additional coverage policy.
