If you live in France you are oblidged to join the French state healthcare system by law. When you join you are asked about all family members including children, who will be included on your health care documents. The applicant will be given a social security number which covers all apllicants. this covers you for about 70% of your costs. You then have the choice to take out a top up policy (mutuelle) with any company of your choice, (in any country) to cover the 30% shortfall.
