France has a new type of health system that was introduced. PUMA, also known as Protection Universelle Maladia, is a health care system that will benefit the French population. It is to cover any health services that native people of France do have. It will also help the new residents of France, for instance newly retired people. This grants them the right to have health coverage through the French government, just after 3 consecutive months and being a legal resident.
“France has offered universal healthcare since 2000. But many expats looking to retire abroad weren’t eligible to apply for coverage until they had legally resided in France for anywhere from one to five years.”
