Organising care with IATS and payment terms


1)      Our telephone hotline is available to you round the clock. We can review your medical details and issue a quote free of charge.
2)      An online clinical consultation or a second opinion from a specialist will be charged at a flat fee of 220 euros. Payments are taken online.
3)      If you wish to be repatriated to France or elsewhere in Europe, IATS will ask you to email us all medical reports and details of all medical appointments you have had in the country.
4) Your case will be reviewed swiftly and we will let you know what solutions we propose. Depending on your wishes and requirements, we will draw up a contractual quote which may be all-inclusive (e.g. air travel, medical assistance and hospital stays.)
5)      If you agree to this quote, you will then need to make a bank transfer.
6)      If you have family living in France, they can make a cash downpayment on your behalf, but only at the hospital or clinic in Paris where your relative will be treated. This sum will be held as security by the hospital or clinic to guarantee the payment of the hospital stay and any medical services provided until the patient is discharged.
7)      We will only be able to dispatch our medical teams once we have received payment in full.
The medical services provided by IATS are not reimbursable under French social security. However, if you have private cover, some insurance companies will agree to reimburse you, subject to prior authorisation.
If you are a French citizen or covered by social security in another European country, the fees for your hospital stay may be refunded to you, or paid directly to the hospital or clinic.
To give you an idea of the sums involved:
- The cost of basic medical repatriation to France ranges from 15,000 to 50,000 euros.
- The overall cost of intensive care hospitalisation ranges from 1,800 to 2,100 euros per 24-hour period.
- The cost of medical services for repatriation to France, based on a maximum flight time of 4 hours, is between 2,200 and 3,000 euros.
- The hourly rate for the aircraft used for medical repatriation ranges from 2,700 to 6,000 euros.
