Need a short and up-to-date heads-up on cataract surgery. My wife has been slated for urgent bilateral cataract surgery late August, and we aren’t au courant with likely costs. She’s 74. We are both pensioner residents and have Cartes Vitales but our Mutuelle only covers hospitalisation. I understand that ocular surgery doesn’t usually involve admission.
Shall we have to pay for the surgery, which was deemed urgent? I see from the Amelie site that it’s about Euro 250 for each eye, but I can’t see if the CV covers all the cost, or a fraction. And what about aftercare and follow-up appointments? These things happen at the most inconvenient times, do they not?
Our mutuelle people seem to be on holiday, the phone doesn’t answer. If no-one knows, I shall contact Fabien but don’t want interrupt his summer hols.
Thanks in advance you peeps
