  • you will be able to withdraw your administrative file and pay hospitalisation costs on the day before, from 2.00pm to 4.30pm ;

When you leave, please remember to withdraw any valuables deposited in the safe, by presenting your receipt (the office, located on the 6th floor, is open Monday to Friday from 10.00am to 4.00pm).


Your discharge relies upon a medical decision. If you wish to leave against medical advice, you will be asked to sign a hospital discharge letter against medical advice.

Plan your mode of transport if you are covered under French social security

The medical administration department is at your disposal for any information on the terms and conditions of your discharge.

For your return home or transfer to a follow-up care facility, three modes of transport are possible :

  • by personal vehicle,
  • by accredited taxi,
  • by ambulance.

Before your discharge, the doctor and head nurse will decide on the most suitable mode of transport depending on your state of health and will draw up the relevant “medical transport prescription”.


Payment for transport

  • If you leave with your personal vehicle, you can make a request for reimbursement of your expenses using the appropriate form.
  • If you can justify 100% coverage for a long-term health condition, the carrier may be paid directly by the health insurance, under the third-party system.
  • If not, you will have to pay in advance and then be reimbursed by your health insurance. In this case, 35% of the costs will be at your expense or reimbursed by your private health insurance company.
  • If the current hospitalisation is the result of a long-term illness, 100% of the transport costs may be covered after the time necessary to update your file.
  • In accordance with Social Security regulations, accredited taxis may transport several patients at once.
