Why choose international health insurance

Are you working in France? Maybe in Paris? The first thing to do before you arrive is check that your insurance will cover you when you’re abroad. Many people don’t realise this, but most domestic health insurance policies will not cover you abroad.
If you have no or little cover, even small medical problems can become very expensive because you will have to pay for your treatment out of your own pocket!

How to take out travel insurance in France

Travel insurance can cover your medical expenses, your personal liability and your repatriation, etc. However, this type of cover is usually only valid for a certain period of time, so will not be suitable for expats. Furthermore, the deductibles/excess amounts are often high, while the maximum amounts of reimbursement tend to be low.
So before you go, check out what your current policy guarantees and whether it meets your needs.  We recommend taking out a dedicated travel insurance policy. Your health should never be neglected … especially when you are abroad!
For guaranteed peace of mind, we recommend using Mondassur, a travel and expat insurance broker.  Get a free quote for your French expatriate insurance here.
