Feeling healthy in your body and in your head is essential during your studies
In France, when you're sick, you have to go to medical practitionner to make a diagnostic. Doctor will deliver you a prescription.
You will use prescription to buy medicine, to make thorough medical examinations or to see a consultant (like gynecologist or psychiatrist)
All those cares costs can be refunded partly by Assurance maladie (mandatory health insurance), partly by "mutuelles" like LMDE (additionnal health insurances).
If you stay more than 3 months in France, you have to check-in on Assurance maladie website to enroll freely into mandatory health insurance
LMDE offers various health insurance plans to replace or complete mandatory health insurance.
