Do not panic, if you carry out a teleconsultation, it will always be supported by the health services.
However, Social Security will only provide 70% of its reimbursement, in the same way as it usually does for physical consultations.

For those concerned, third-party payment will continue to apply.

100% reimbursement remains possible in the cases provided for by Social Security, in particular in the event of long-term illness, occupational disease, or teleconsultation in connection with maternity in particular, underlines Ameli.fr.
