France: Subscribers have more options to cancel health insurance

France: Subscribers have more options to cancel health insurance

From 1 Dec 2020, individual and collective medical insurance plans can be cancelled by the subscriber at any time, subject to providing the insurer with 30 days’ notice — under measures included in Loi No 2019-733. The law also allows subscribers changing plans to instruct their new insurers to trigger cancellation arrangements with the old insurer. The new law does not apply to insurers who are only allowed to cancel on 31 December with a two-month notice period. Also, insurance policies providing coverage for incapacity, invalidity and death are not affected by the new law.
