Foreign patients

Welcome to Hospices Civils de Lyon

You are a patient who is a citizen of a country in the European Economic Area

If you are a citizen of a country in the European Economic Area, prior to attending, you should contact your health insurance body to check whether your treatment will be fully covered by your country's health insurance body.

If so, your health insurance body will issue you with a Form S2 to be given to the hospital providing your treatment.

If the treatment is not covered, you will be requested to pay all charges in full before you are assigned an appointment, based on a quotation.

If the treatment is partially covered by your health insurance body, you will need to pay the hospital approximately 20% of your hospital charges.

To review your proposed hospitalisation, please contact:

  • the medical team of your choice
  • the Admissions Office of the relevant hospital

Accessible via the website http://www.chu-lyon.fr/fr/consulter-medecin
