    Complementary health insurance Pass

    Students with scholarships or in financial difficulty, the Southern Region gives you a helping hand to finance your complementary health insurance with the Pass Mutuelles.

    It is not compulsory for students to take out a complementary health insurance policy. While some students can still benefit from their family's health insurance, others choose not to pay the monthly cost of complementary health insurance, which often leads to a lack of care due to a lack of funds. It should be noted that the price of a complementary health insurance varies according to the profile of the insured, young or old, with existing pathologies, etc. Also, single students who receive emergency student aid can apply for complementary health aid. This aid allows them not to pay for doctor and dentist consultations, treatments, nursing care and hospitalisation costs.

    Aix-Marseille University's disability mission welcomes and supports students with physical, sensory or psychological disabilities, dyslexia or a long-term disabling health problem. It offers measures adapted to each student.
