Expatriates who have taken early retirement and settled in France have been advised to take out expat health insurance.
A recent article published in the Telegraph has assessed the options available to people living in the Mediterranean country.
While in previous years people from abroad have enjoyed using the country's healthcare system without contributing financially through their taxes, president Nicolas Sarkozy changed all this and called for the exclusion of these people from the state healthcare system.
The international community was not pleased and thus a compromise was reached.
Only expatriates who were affiliated to the CMU scheme (Couverture Maladie Universelle) as of November 23rd 2007 were allowed to continue their state healthcare cover.
All other non-working expatriates under retirement age must now have "full medical insurance, unless they can show they would not be a burden on the state".
Expatriate Healthcare specialise in providing international health insurance. Make sure you're protected.
