France has many benefits to offer expatriates, especially those looking to raise children there. When compared to other countries like Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, France ranks well when it comes to areas like personal taxes, education systems for non-French children, the number of international schools to choose from and the number of cultural and leisure activities available, according to AmbaFrance.
If you are an expatriate in France or are looking to relocate to France but want an international major medical insurance plan that includes maternity coverage in France, you have multiple options to choose from.
As many individuals know, France has universal health coverage that includes qualifying expatriates. However, many individuals with this coverage still end up purchasing “top up” insurance.
A few benefits of purchasing an individual private health insurance plan include choosing and knowing what you will be covered for, not having to find an insurance plan to “top up” your universal health coverage, having a plan that will follow you around the world (depending on the plan), and having access to customer service agents when needed.
A couple of popular plans that offer maternity coverage in France to expatriates are the Global Medical plan, the Cigna Global Medical plan.
The IMG Global Medical plan comes in five levels: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Gold Plus and Platinum. The Platinum level comes standard with maternity coverage. All other levels of this plan do not cover maternity.
