Book your treatment
A spa treatment is a "medical" act: your doctor's prescription and treatment sheet are the 2 documents required for a spa treatment.
- Check the medical prescription, duly filled in with your doctor, specifying what pathology (phlebology, rheumatology, dermatology ...); then send it to your health insurance fund to obtain the agreement (do not forget to indicate your "resources", which make it possible to study your rights).
- Approval of the treatment: the duration is limited ... Be vigilant on the dates of validity. As a reminder, a single spa treatment per year will be granted for a period of 18 days.
You can then book your treatment with the Thermal Baths of Rochefort.
Before starting your treatment, make an appointment with your "spa" doctor who will decide on your treatments during your stay according to your needs.
Here is a list of the documents to bring with you:
- Agreement of your insurance fund for the cost of the treatment
- Vitale Card / Social Security Certificate
- Thermal Reservation Confirmation
- Medical file (exams, letter from your physician ...)
