Degree-seeking students 28 & over

Degree-seeking students over the age of 28 will be registered with a private health insurance company named MSH International that covers all basic medical costs as well as some alternative medicine.

This coverage includes eye glasses, contact lenses, preventive dental treatment, alternative medicine such as chiropractic care, doctors who make house calls (SOS Médecins), up to fifteen sessions a semester with a psychologist, and much more. You can consult the student health care handbook [pdf] for more details.

Cost of the health care plan

The cost of the health care plan is charged directly to your student account, and payment is due for new students when they register for classes.

Service Cost Validity
Health Insurance €440 One semester
Health Fee €48 One semester


Step-by-step reimbursement process

  • Pay upfront and ask for a feuille de soins. Remember to always have enough cash or a checkbook with you, as not all medical providers have a credit card machine. Ask the medical provider for an official claim form which is called feuille de soins. This document will serve as your receipt and is a mandatory document to claim for reimbursement.
  • Submit a RIB (your bank account information). You will need to submit your RIB the first time you send a claim form. If you do not have a bank account in France, you can receive your reimbursements either via check or via wire transfer to your bank back home. You just need to provide the name and address of the bank, account number, and routing number.
  • Getting reimbursed for prescription medication. Bring your doctor’s prescription for medication to a pharmacy and ask for a feuille de soins as a receipt. It is imperative that you place the stickers and barcodes from the medication boxes on your feuille de soins. You must also submit your original doctor’s prescription along with your feuille de soins to be reimbursed.
  • Send your claim forms to the insurance company. Send all your claim forms directly to the insurance company or drop them off at the Student Development Office to be sent in. You need to indicate your AUP ID number preceded by 'AUP' on every sheet. Don’t forget to attach a RIB (your bank information) to the first claim form you send.


How to opt out of AUP’s health care plan

If you are a degree-seeking student over 28 and have an insurance that covers you in France then you are eligible to opt out. In order to opt out you need to provide a valid proof of insurance. If you are working in France and they provide your insurance, you will need to provide a copy of your employment contract. All documents must be provided to the health plan coordinator no later than orientation check-in.
