Social security

Since the start of the 2019/2020 school year, the student social security scheme has disappeared. You will automatically be affiliated to a compulsory health insurance scheme for the reimbursement of your health expenses.

Special cases exist; especially if:

  • you have already been registered in a previous year
  • you are a foreign student

You will find all the necessary information at this link.

Need a supplemental health insurance?

If you wish to supplement the social security reimbursements, you can subscribe to the supplemental health insurance of your choice. If your budget does not allow you to subscribe to optional supplemental health insurance, assistance is available.

You can visit a city doctor or visit the Health Centres which are open to everyone. There, you can consult general practitioners or specialists; you can avoid the advance payments with your health card (or your CAEM).
A doctor is also present at ENSTA Paris on Wednesday afternoons by appointment.

In case of emergency:

  • Emergency unit: 15 (24/7)
  • SOS Doctors : 08 26 88 91 91 (24/7)
