My partner is a German citizen working in Germany. She will quit her job and come to join me in France soon, initially for a period of a few months (but she may stay longer depending on how things develop). We want to know what the best health insurance options are. My sense is that it would be cheapest to have German health insurance. My questions are:
- Can she apply for German health insurance for unemployed people as soon as she has quit?
- What is the rough cost of this?
- Can she maintain that insurance if she is in another E.U. country (what conditions does she need to meet to maintain it, e.g. does she need to be looking for a job?)
- In case anyone knows, what are her rights to access French insurance schemes?
