FRENCH MEDICAL SYSTEM
First of all, it is worth noting that costs for medical services in France are among the most attractive ones. The quality and the results are also better recognized than in other leading countries in the medical tourism industry. Why do most people choose France exclusively for leisure and travel? The reason is that the original French healthcare system did not provide the possibility of accepting foreign residents for treatment. Those who wished to receive a high-quality French treatment faced a large number of insurmountable formalities, ending up in a waste of time that the foreign patient didn’t always have.
At this moment, France is opening its doors to anyone who wants to get a first-class treatment at an affordable price. France has an extensive history of discoveries in the field of medicine. Because of this, the French medicine deservedly takes the first place in the list of the World Health Organization. In addition to important discoveries in the field of medicine, France also accounts for more than 1,500 private clinics and more than 30 universities, where professors pass on their knowledge to future medical specialists.
In France, there are many great qualified medical professionals working in clinics and hospitals. In these medical institutions, the medical equipments are regularly maintained; high-tech and innovative treatment methods are introduced. All health care institutions undergo regular examinations by the French National Health Authority. Certifications shall be obtained not only by the clinics but also by all practitioners who, furthermore, keep on learning specific developments about their speciality. In order to maintain the quality of medicine at the highest level and improve the procedures, the French medical scientists are constantly working on medical researches.
The result of this work includes numerous medical discoveries. Thanks to these researches, French specialists can diagnose “potential” uterine cancer by finding the cells which can subsequently transform into cancerous ones. Early diagnostics can prevent disease or provide a successful treatment. France ranks first among the countries in which infertility can be successfully treated. It also shows the highest percentage of successfulness in vitro fertilization.

Most French clinics successfully treat orphan and severe diseases. For instance, the percentage of full recovery of hepatitis C patients (genotype 2 and 3) is more than 80%. French doctors were the first to use the method of radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer treatment. And this is not an exhaustive list of examples that place France among the leading countries in the medical field. Thus, it’s safe to say that the French are the best not only in tourism, gastronomy, and fashion, but are also the indisputable champions in the medical field.

Truth and lie about treatment in France
France is the luxury country, treatment in France is very expensive! False Really, many Parisian clinics are pretty expensive, however, their patients understand that they pay for the high level of service, but not for the quality of the medicine. Everybody knows that quality of the French medicine is high throughout the country, even in towns. On average, the prices in France are 20% lower than in Germany. If you want to get high-quality treatment and not to overpay for the image of the city, go for treatment to Lyon or another city that is not very popular among tourists. (hyperlink to our prices). The French are famous for the fashion, food but not for the medicine! False The Government of France allocates more than 70 billion euros a year for the development of the medicine. Every second clinic is equipped with robotic surgery, namely, in France, there is only in the whole Europe room of 3D surgery. And we don't e...
Don’t wait for an HSE operation!
Why do patients in Ireland – both North and South – have to wait for a hospital operation for months, and in some cases even for years, unless they have private medical insurance or they can afford expensive private surgery? Public hospital waiting lists on both sides of the Irish border are growing longer on a weekly basis. Certainly it is true: good health is priceless. But just because you can afford to go private, does that mean that you should be obliged to, and spend a great deal of money that you will never get back? There is now another alternative. European Union Directive 2011/24/EU on the Patient’s Right to seek Cross-border Healthcare was passed into law across all the countries of the European Union by 2014. It means that if a person is legally resident and covered by the public health system in one European Union Member State, he or she can go for medical treatment to another EU country and claim back some, or all, of the cost of the procedure from thei...
The French hospitals, "En Marche!"
Presidential elections took place a little over a month ago in France and Emmanuel Macron was elected as the new president. This is the youngest French president in the country's history. Earlier, Macron was an investment banker and in a consequence the Minister of Economy and Finance. It is not hard to fathom that the new president has no problem with the economy. His world famous slogan sounds as "En Marche!" that means "Forward!" in English. And France moves in this direction now. The French medicine isn’t an exception. Now, the French hospitals move "En Marche!" What does it mean? It means the following: earlier the French state clinics had no right to be engaged in commercial activities. This ban didn’t just complicate, but often made treatment impossible for foreign citizens. Respectively, such a direction as medical tourism was very little developed in France until now. For this reason, even today not all foreign patients know about an accessible opportunity for tre...
