18-Day Social Security-Approved Treatment

Step 1

Start with a consultation with your doctor

Your GP must prescribe you a government-approved 18-consecutive-day social-security approved treatment. The GP will give you a care form indicating the therapeutic orientation and the desired spa.

Please be aware that you can benefit from a dual-orientation to treat several conditions (e.g. eczema-asthma). All you need to do is ask your doctor to specify this on the claim form.

Once your claim has been completed, send it to your health insurance provider before you leave.

Step 2

Social Security

To obtain a refund from your health insurance provider, your treatment must be prescribed by your GP or a specialist doctor. The approved treatment must last 18 consecutive days. You must complete the treatment request form (‘déclaration de ressources’) and send the printed form to your health insurance provider for approval (3 to 5 week time frame).

On arrival, you must present the treatment request form and pay the ‘ticket modérateur’ (co-payment) and additional rates. The latter can be paid for by your health insurance policy depending on your contract.

The doctor’s fees are paid directly to their medical office. This includes filiform showers for dermatology treatments, complementary medical practices for ENT/RT treatments and follow-up consultations.

Other services such as your transportation and accommodation costs can be covered, subject to means-testing. Social security will inform you of this within the treatment agreement.

For non-approved courses of treatment lasting 6, 12 or 18 days

Does your schedule or your lifestyle mean you can’t spend three weeks undergoing a spa treatment? Then you can opt for one of our independent courses of treatment lasting 6 or 12 days. The treatments will not be covered by social security. They still provide excellent results. Supervised by a dermatologist or an ENT doctor, these treatment courses offer a programme of spa treatments identical to the social security-approved treatments but easier to fit into your schedule.

Your arrival

15 days before your arrival, our booking department will send you confirmation of your booking and the meeting time for your first day at Les Thermes.

Transportation

Getting to Saint-Gervais:
the town can be reached by aeroplane, with Genève Cointrin airport 80km away. By road via ‘Autoroute Blanche’ A40, or by train to the TGV station Saint-Gervais-les-Bains-Le Fayet.

Getting to Les Thermes:
from June to September you can book the spa shuttle to collect you from Saint Gervais or Le Fayet, which takes you to and from the thermal baths. Outside this period, we advise you to book the ‘Montenbus’ service. When arriving for your treatment, a car-sharing arrangement can be set up by the reception team.

Dermatology:
During your treatment you should bring your swimsuit, a plastic bag (to put your wet swimsuit in after the treatment), non-slip flip-flops for the treatment, as well as a cup for the drink treatment. We’ll provide you with a bathrobe and towel each day. If your child is a patient, the accompanying person must bring their own robe/towel, please note that only one accompanying person is allowed.
