In essence, health and the healthcare pathway are evolving: new diseases appear, discoveries, new communities, and new social rights; health coverage must also develop accordingly. Current insurance policies do not respond to evolving needs of customers. Of those insured customers who also own health coverage in France, many feel abandoned by their insurance regarding their health particularities. Considering France's three levels of health insurance, none can fully meet the evolving customers' needs.
