G.P (General Practitioner)
Please also note that, whether you are a European student (holder of an EHIC) or a non-European student (registered to the French National health insurance), you will only be covered for part of your medical expenses. To be entirely covered, you can take an additional healthcare cover.
In France, it is compulsory to fill in the «déclaration de choix du médecin traitant» once you have chosen a G.P (General Practitioner), otherwise you will not be fully refunded.
