Supplementary health cover for children
Supplementary health cover is not mandatory in Luxembourg. In fact, the CNS National Health Fund reimburses 100% of the cost of consulting a paediatrician. However, often, when purchasing glasses or opting for a single hospital room, for example, it can come in useful.
That’s the case for Laetitia. A young mother of two young children, during his first months, her son suffered acute abdominal pain, making him cry inconsolably.
“On the advice of the paediatrician, I took my baby to an osteopath who, in two sessions, was able to calm his colic. I was delighted with the result even if the bill was quite hefty”.
An osteopathy session in Luxembourg will set you back between €80 and €100. They are covered by some supplementary health policies such as AXA. Moreover if you have been a customer of AXA health insurance for at least 3 months, your newborn is covered free of charge until his or her 1ᵉʳ birthday!
