Expatriation in a foreign country is a path full of pitfalls. Choosing an international health insurance is often a prerequisite in view of your situation in your host country and the healthcare system of the country. What are the country health regimes in the world? Am I expatriate or detached? Should I take out expatriate health insurance? Mondassur answers your questions about insurance and health country by country.
I will work abroad
As a worker in a foreign country, you generally depend on one of the following 2 cases:
I am a seconded worker
This means that your contract is a French contract and that you remain affiliated to the French social protection system; Your company sends you for a fixed-term assignment in a foreign country. As such, you keep the coverage of the French social security during the whole of your mission in the country. In order to avoid any unpleasant surprises, it is strongly recommended that you take out a supplemental international insurance allowing you to have a charge for your expenses not covered by French social security and for guarantees such as repatriation to your country of origin , This type of mutual insurance company is also called private supplementary expatriate insurance.
I am an expat
You no longer depend on the French social protection system. Your French company sends you abroad with a specific contract, you work in a local company of the country where you reside or you create your company abroad. As such, you are considered to be a resident of the country in which you reside and can benefit (but not always!) From the social system of the country of residence. It is essential for you to learn very quickly in order to know how you are covered. In all cases, we recommend that you take out private expatriate insurance. Some countries have a health care system that is still very rudimentary and international health insurance covers you immediately, regardless of your situation and allows you to go through better care facilities. If necessary, private insurance also allows repatriation to France.
Health insurance schemes by country
Every country in the world has its own health insurance system. It is often difficult for expatriates to obtain information on a country's specific health care system or to know the insurance methods to which they are entitled (sickness, old age, unemployment, industrial accidents, family allowances, maternity. ..). In order to facilitate all these steps and to guide international expatriates, Mondassur has created explanatory pages on health insurance schemes by country:
Australia - Brazil - Canada - Chile - United States - India - Mexico - United Kingdom - Russia - Singapore - Thailand - Vietnam
