| Top Up Your EHIC Cover in France! Unlike many EU countries, the French National Health System is part-contributory which means both residents and visitors are responsible for paying 20-30% of medical expenses. | If you are relying on just your EHIC for travel to France you will still need to pay part of your medical expenses out of pocket! | EHIC in France wraps around the French National Health System, providing cover for medical expenses not covered by an EHIC, and it covers repatriation and funeral expenses (which are not covered by an EHIC). | | EHIC in France has no upper age limit, no exclusions for pre-existing medical conditions, no medical questions or screening required and it's quick and easy to apply online with instant documentation in English. |
