France's health care system is the object of national pride and international fascination. Ranked among the best in the world by the World Health Organization, it is generous and universal. Residents of France get great health care for low prices and get reimbursed for most of it. But who pays for the system? And is it sustainable?
The French healthcare system covers both public and private hospitals, doctors and other medical specialists who provide French healthcare to every resident in France regardless of age, income or status.
