"In Lyon, healthcare services are provided by the public system and private hospitals. The French public healthcare system is known for its quality and accessibility, but wait times for some procedures or treatments can be long. Private healthcare delivery is also an option which can provide shorter wait times; however, these services come at a cost and are largely used by those with supplementary coverage- such as health insurance or a mutuelle- which covers the cost. Additionally, there are many highly qualified doctors offering state-of-the-art facilities and treatments in both public and private healthcare settings in Lyon," commented one expat who made the move to Lyon, France, France.
