Healthcare in Paris
Healthcare in Paris, as in greater France, is exemplary, and is often flagged as a benchmark for both developed and developing countries. The World Health Organization (WHO) rated it as the best in the world, and both locals and foreigners regularly attest to a high standard care received in an efficient and affordable manner.
Expats living in Paris will find a comprehensive network of public and private healthcare facilities available, and those who qualify for the state-sponsored public health insurance system can enjoy substantial coverage.
Expats are free to choose their doctor in Paris, most of which practice privately but uphold rates negotiated by the national government. A few may charge over and above this, however, especially if they are specialists addressing a niche medical matter.
Notable medical institutions in Paris include the historic Hospital de la Pitie Salpetriere and American Hospital of Paris, the latter of which is ideal for expats due to most of the staff speaking English fluently.
