Reimbursement by cheque

Conditions

The insured person who has paid fees upfront above a minimum value per household of €100 can request a refund by cheque. Only invoices paid within the last two weeks may be reimbursed by cheque.

Article 163 des statuts de la CNS
Les prestations en nature pour lesquelles la personne protégée a fait l'avance des frais, dépassant un montant fixé par le conseil d'administration de la caisse compétente, peuvent être remboursées sur demande de l'ayant droit visé à l'article 84 du Code de la sécurité sociale au moyen d'un chèque tiré sur un compte bancaire de la Caisse nationale de santé au guichet des caisses de maladie ou des agences pour lesquelles les conseils d'administration des caisses compétentes ont institué ce service.
Aux fins de l'application de la disposition qui précède sont prises en compte les factures acquittées, au jour de leur présentation à la caisse compétente, depuis moins de quinze jours.

Terms of coverage

The insured person can visit a CNS counter to receive a reimbursement by cheque. If the conditions for reimbursement by cheque are met, the CNS reimburses the portion of the costs covered by health insurance by issuing a personal cheque.

If the conditions for reimbursement by cheque are met, but the insured person cannot personally come to the counter, they may give permission to a person of their choice to come to the CNS with the invoices. This is only possible with a procuration given by the insured person. The CNS provides a standard form. The insured person must enclose copies of identification documents: their own ID and the ID of the person they authorise to receive the cheque.

Nominative cheque

The cheque is nominative which means that it must be cashed by the person to whom it has been issued.

Where to cash a cheque

A nominative cheque issued by the CNS must be cashed in a Post office no later than 30 days after its issue date. The cheque must be cashed by the person to whom the cheque has been issued. The expiry date is indicated on the cheque.

Important note: A cheque cannot be cashed later than 30 days after its issue date.
