Allianz in French expat deal

Allianz Worldwide Care, the international health insurance specialist, has formed a partnership with Caisse des Français de l'Etranger (CFE) to offer French expatriates medical cover over and above that provided by French state-provided healthcare.

Allianz said it is the only international health insurance company to have made arrangements with the CFE for direct, self-administered reimbursement of medical costs in the case where a client has selected supplementary healthcare cover.

Under the agreement, the insurer will seek reimbursement of medical costs directly from the CFE on behalf of the client, following receipt of a completed claim form. According to Allianz, this means that clientsonly have to claim from one organisation, rather than two, thus reducing the administrative burden "significantly".
