France's health-care system
The national student health-care plan and supplemental group plans
French health-care coverage, provided under the social security system, is of very high quality. Covered individuals are reimbursed for a portion of their medical expenses in return for a low basic payment. For students, that payment was €198 in 2010. You join the plan at your institution when you register for classes at the beginning of the academic year. Participation in the plan is mandatory for non-European students.
