Voluntary 'Top-Up' Health Insurance in France

Tuesday 06 April 2021

The latest release of our guide to voluntary 'top-up' health insurance in France.

Although not compulsory, most residents in France take out a complementary health insurance policy, often called a 'top-up' or a 'mutuelle'.

This is because the French system does not reimburse all medical costs, except for some major illnesses and diseases. Even then 'optional' extras, such as a single room in hospital, are not automatically available.

In our latest guide you can read about the limits to the state health system, how much you might need to pay, and whether you need additional cover.

Since 2020, it has been possible to terminate your policy more easily, so we also cover this aspect of the policies in our guide.
