first dollar coverage ?
This expression, both in French and in English, seem to be used mostly in the context of insurance. Here are a few quotes that may help:
"French nationals on long-term assignments outside France, known as “expatriés,” may obtain the basic level of coverage through the Caisse des Français à l’étranger (CFE); if they have not done so, they require first-dollar coverage (au premier franc). "

"I. Basic Purpose of Financial Responsibility
The basic purpose of financial responsibility is simply to establish reasonable assurance that someone has the funds to pay for the costs of corrective action and third-party liability resulting from an UST release. This means that someone (or combination of persons) is ready to pay from the "first dollar" of costs incurred up to the maximum amount required by the Federal regulations."
"First Dollar Coverage
A State fund can be considered a full coverage fund even if it has a deductible amount that the owner or operator is responsible for paying, as long as it provides for "first dollar coverage" by the State. First dollar coverage simply means that if owners and operators do not meet the deductible requirement, the State can still pay for corrective action and third party claims, including the deductible amount, by using its fund. In this instance, the State may want to consider pursuing cost recovery against the owner or operator for the deductible amount, although this would be at the State's discretion."
