Health Insurance in France for International Students
France has a good healthcare system and it is open to domestic as well as foreign students. It has generous terms and conditions so that students can live healthy lives while they study in France.
Health insurance in France is affordable and top quality. The health insurance is subsidized by the French government. It is provided under the national security system called securite sociale. Enrolment to the national security system is automatic upon the registration for classes at the beginning of the year. It is included in the tuition fees. The security system provides 60 to 80 percent of the expenses incurred in the treatment of illness.
According to Campus France, "Beginning September 1, 2019, all students in France, French and international, will receive medical insurance through the general social security system. The last vestiges of the former student system will disappear. That system had still applied to students who, in 2017/18, were already enrolled in a French higher education institution."
