Our charges


Procedures reimbursed by the state health insurance system (Assurance Maladie) are specified in the NABM (Nomenclature des Actes de Biologie Médicale, the official listing of biomedical procedures) and numbered with a B letter reference.

The NABM requires prescribing doctors to respect the guidelines on reimbursement, and testing laboratories to comply with specific technical and invoicing requirements.

The laboratory invoice will specify the codes corresponding to the biomedical procedures undertaken, the total value of B-code references, and the total charge.

A minimum total value of B20 is applicable.

For a B5 blood sample or a B5 bacteriology sample, a B14 pre-test supplement may be charged.
