Is your French Top Up health insurance up for renewal?

Sponsored article: Prior to your health insurance contract in France renewing for a further year always take the time to compare prices and to look for better cover. Lawrence and Melanie, from Swiss Life agency, Bordeaux, explain...

“Top up health insurance contracts run for one year and are automatically renewed each year”, says Lawrence. “There are two options to cancel a top up health insurance contract. The first is to send a letter of cancellation, by recorded delivery, which must be sent two months before the anniversary date of your contract.

“The second option is by loi Chatel. Every year when it gets close to your anniversary date, your insurance company will send you a letter or an email called Appel de Cotisation. This is the renewal information about your health insurance contract.

“On the envelope you will have a date stamped by the post office; if it is by email the date will be on it. You have 20 days only from that date to cancel your contract. A letter must be sent by recorded delivery in which you must mention that you wish to cancel your contract by loi chattel”.
