Subscribe to a complementary health insurance

  • Complementary health insurances (or « mutuelles ») are private and charged organizations that allow you to complete your health insurance reimbursements. Subscribing to a complementary health insurance is not mandatory but it is strongly recommended, in the event of major health expenses (dental, optical, hospitalisation...).
     
  • You are advised to request several estimates and compare the offers. You can contact :

- Student insurances 
- Generalist insurances and insurance companies
- Banks

  • Make sure the complementary insurance you choose offers a civil liability (“responsabilité civile”) valid for both your private life and your student life.
     
  • If you have already subscribed to a health insurance covering your expenses in France from your home country. In this case, you do not have  to subscribe  to a complementary insurance in France again.
