Frequently Asked Questions about optical and dental coverage
in international health insurance contracts

Not always.

Usually you have to opt for the high-end version, and the surgery will be subject to a specific limit.


Orthodontic care is only covered up to the age of 16. This is the law of French social security: even the CFE will not pay.

It depends on the insurance company.

Some insurance companies include it in the hospitalization guarantee, so there is no limit.

Others include it in the dental option with a maximum of 2,500 euros, which is derisory compared to the cost of such surgery, which can be up to 20,000 euros.

You will have annual spending limits on dental and optical expenses. Carefully analyze the fee differences and limits.

Limit per tooth: be careful, it is generally the one that is most easily exceeded. It is therefore important.

If you have young children, the orthodontic coverage is important, the treatments are long and expensive.

Beware of excluded dental care such as gum treatment, endodontics, sometimes even implants.

Important: Cataract surgery is covered with the hospitalization option.

It is not necessary to subscribe to the optical option to be covered for this surgery.
