Practical Information

  • Beneficiaries

ACS France Expatriate Health Insurance can be subscribed by anyone under 65 years of age residing outside his/her country of origin and being member of the International Mobility Association*.

  • Territoriality

You are covered in the geographic zone you chose for your expatriation. For countries outside the chosen geographic area, medical costs are only refundable if they have been incurred during a stay of less than 7 weeks and stem from an accident or an illness for which treatment was urgent.

  • Effective date

The covers take effect following receipt of the enrolment application accompanied by the first payment. Acceptance is subject to the approval of the medical questionnaire sent with the application form.

The contract is then renewed automatically on January 1st of each year.

  • Waiting period

The following treatments are refunded after a waiting period:

– Dental prosthetics: 6 months
– Optical: 6 months

  • Premiums

They depend on the insurance plan, the chosen area of expatriation and your age, i.e., the age reached during the calendar year (e.g. a person born in 1980 who enrolled in 2010 = 30 years whatever the month of enrolment).

The premiums change once a year, on January 1st, according to your age and changes in the general medical consumption index.

Premiums can be paid annually, semiannually or quarterly in advance by cheque, wire transfer, direct debit or credit card. Monthly payments are also possible when premiums are paid by direct debit or credit card.
