As in most of France, healthcare in Paris is exemplary and often flagged as a benchmark for both developed and developing countries. The World Health Organization rated it as one of the best in the world, and both locals and foreigners regularly attest to the high standard of care received efficiently and affordably.
Expats living in Paris will find a comprehensive network of public and private healthcare facilities available. Those who qualify for the state-sponsored public health insurance system can enjoy the substantial coverage it offers.
Expats are free to choose their doctor in Paris. Most practise privately but uphold rates negotiated by the national government. A few may charge over and above this, especially if they are specialists addressing a niche medical matter.
Below is a list of prominent hospitals in Paris.

"I’ve been fortunate enough not to need to use the healthcare system too much; however, my sliver of experience has shown it is very welcoming to foreigners. Healthcare providers will treat you first, and worry about expenses later. In my case, I did not yet have my carte Vitale which is a public health card that covers expenses. I was told I could be later reimbursed for various expenses I might have incurred." Read more about Canadian expat Dorian's experiences in Paris.
