Just like any person with social cover, the farmer and his family have the right to health insurance cover: reimbursement of medical and pharmaceutical expenses.
The social insurance card, which is renewed every year, justifies these rights under the agricultural regime.
The case of agricultural employees
Agricultural employees benefit from Social Insurance (ASA) that covers health insurance, maternity benefit, invalidity insurance and death insurance.
They are covered for accidents at work and illness resulting from professional activities.
AMEXA is obligatory
Farmers’ Health Insurance (AMEXA) is used to reimburse some of the medical expenses incurred in case of illness or accidents during the private life of the farmer, his/her spouse and family.
AMEXA includes: health insurance, maternity benefit, invalidity insurance.
The “carte vitale”
A smart card, known as the “carte vitale”, will be issued to you on registration. It will prove your rights under the terms of the social protection regime.
A paper certificate will be issued to you at the same time as the “carte vitale”; keep it carefully! It will prove your rights to health professionals who do not yet have the equipment required for reading the “carte Vitale”.
