Social security coverage
For patients with a carte vitale (French healthcare card) or a certificate from their social security center dated no more than three months prior to their appointment date stating that their insurance is up to date, no upfront payment is required for the tests and analyses performed by the medical test laboratory (except those not included in the official list); the healthcare professional is paid directly by the state or the health insurer.
Although you can come for a blood test without making an appointment, it is advisable to telephone beforehand (on +33 (0)1 40 61 39 46), since some tests require specific conditions and can only be performed on an appointment basis.
