Hello, I’ve never made eyeglasses in France before, but am thinking of making a new one just in case the current one breaks. I was consulting my mutuelle from MGEN where I’m on the plan “MGEN Référence Actif”, and I noticed:
Verre unifocal de faible et moyenne correction
Réseau: régime obligatoire=60%, 60 € (verre simple adulte)
Verre unifocal de forte correction
Réseau: régime obligatoire=60% 140 €(verre simple adulte)
- What does “regime obligatoire” mean in this case in connection with reimbursements?
- I heard that in the eyeglass stores in Paris, you can get your eye examined as well, is this true? Or, do I’ve to consult a “formal” opthalmologist (meaning, outside the store, say from mondocteur) to get any reimbursement from sécu and/or mutuelle?
- Given the above detail about my mutuelle, does it mean that, for a simple glass and with no big correction, they’ll reimburse upto 60€/glass, i.e. 120€ for the eyeglass/lunette?
- If your answer to 1) is yes, and I get examined in a optical store and get eyeglasses from them, will sécu(CPAM) still reimburse me, specially considering the fact that I’m not in any kind of emergency and also that I’m not consulting an opthalmologist? Will they reimburse me 70% of the eyeglass’s cost-i.e. if the eyeglass costs me 200€, will sécu reimburse 140€
Thanks in advance!
