My Doctor wants a urine sample and take it to the Pharmacy - he quotes 80 Euro. Is this right???? I thankfully do have a Top Up insurance but the price does seem excessive! Do Phamacies take samples or should I go the Laboratory? Thank you.
Sounds like somone is taking the p...
Nice one - tend to agree with you but It is on the Ordnance!!
What is written on the ordonnance? The cost is never mentioned there ....
You can pick up an (empty ....) "flacon" at the pharmacy or the laboratory, fill it as required and take it to the laboratory together with the ordonnance and your carte vitale and mutuelle. They will do the analysis and send a copy of the results to your doctor and also to you.
No, Rosemary, that cannot possibly be right, not just for a urine sample. Did this include the €24 you pay to the GP?. Your doctor would normally write you a prescription (ordannonce) and sometimes, if they have them in stock, an sample bottle, otherwise you get one from the pharmacy or labatoire analyses. They will take your sample away when you supply it and charge you accordingly and then copy a analysis report to you and your doctor.
Whenever we've had to provide a sample (or 24 hours worth we collect the flacon) from Labazur, produce our carte vitale and have the results online the same day. We pay nothing (we have a mutuelle). https://www.labazur.com/
Hi to All My Messagers
I happened to see a District nurse today and she took my sample and no money was exchanged just my Carrte Vitale- still rather confused why my doctor wrote down 60 Euros!? So hopefully all is resolved!
Thank you one and all.
Perhaps it said 60 mlts
Well the cost went down 20€ during the course of this thread.
Let's hope we will know the final cost as that's a lot for a p..! Didn't it used to be 1p?
