E-mail is highly efficient to send documents, but is it really a secure channel for sending medical data?

At the Overseas Social Security, we resolutely opt for the use of online forms when transferring sensitive medical information. For reasons of security, we prefer receiving these documents through the secure environment on our website instead of using e-mail.

The Overseas Social Security will systematically phase out the reception of requests containing medical data by e-mail. That is why we advise you to always use the online form when submitting medical expenses.

Of course, you’re not on your own. We are happy to assist you in how to use our online form in an optimal way.

How to proceed concretely? We recommend you to follow the step-by-step plan on how to submit medical expenses(.pdf-New window).
