Health Insurance and the expatriate : what operation ? What refunds ?
I am considered an expatriate if :
– I have been working abroad for a foreign employer,
I live abroad,
– my employer asks me to work abroad for a limited period of time, but has not chosen the regime of detachment,
I am detached, but the maximum period of detachment has been reached.
The situation of expatriate lost to the insured of his rights to the French health Insurance. The expatriate reports to the social security scheme of the country where he works and must contribute to this plan. However, he can choose to continue to benefit from the French health Insurance by joining the Caisse des Français de l’etranger (CFE).

It is advisable to sign a contract that guarantees the reimbursement of medical expenses and medical repatriation in case of illness abroad.
