You can check the website Annuaire santé to locate a facility and find information on its rates.
As a general rule, the Caisse will directly cover 80% of your hospital expenses (100% in some situations).
Extensive medical treatment costing 120 euros or more, or procedures assigned a coefficient of 60 or above, are reimbursed 100%.
If you do pay upfront, you will need to apply for reimbursement by submitting your "bulletin de sortie" (proof of hospitalization which you will receive upon discharge) to the local health insurance fund ("caisse d'assurance maladie") that covers the geographic area in which you were hospitalized.
There is at least one CPAM in every French department (or CGSS for the overseas departments).
You can determine which CPAM or CGSS to apply to for your reimbursement by doing a department-by-department search on the CNAMTS (National Health Insurance Fund for Salaried Workers) website.
Please also be aware that there are a few clinics that are not "conventionné"; i.e.
that do not adhere to the national agreement between practitioners and the national health care system.
