Hi, I'm moving to France for my sciences studies in the university Toulouse 1. They required a valid insurance but the French system is very complicated and university international relation is not very friendly. They cannot help me. But, if you are more than 28 year old and non European, you have to insure you with a private health insurance. I tried to obtain the "Sécurité Social" for student but they dont accepted me.
After searching on the internet, a Finnish friend of me advice me the company Swisscare (www.swisscare-intl.com) for only EUR 448 / year.
My contribution... Cheers !!
