Hi,Sometime during 2005 and 2008 when I was living in the SW, I went to an Opticians, had an eye test and bought some specs', as you do. We left France but returned at the end of last year.Yesterday I decided to go to the local Opticians to organise an eye test and get some new specs', Ha!? What the Hell has happened here since I last went to an Opticians in France? I couldn't believe what I was told and I would be grateful if someone could confirm that wat I was told is true, and that I have not misunderstood ?I innocently walked in to request an eye test only to be told that it was not possible. What I must do is make an apppointment with a specialist Doctor/Opthalmologist from a list I was given covering the Department, they would then give me a eye test and a prescription, then I must find an Optician wno will make up the specs' !? I was also told that there is a SIX MONTH waiting list to see the specialist.
My daughter's carnet de sante seems to have vanished of the face of the earth. How do I replace it? I've looked online and it says to contact your PMI that is for your residence, but what is the PMI?

Thanks.

Can anyone tell me how one can contact "Ameli" (CPAM) without having French health insurance? I frequently holiday in Brittany, and applied to CPAM for reimbursement of medical costs. I was told this should be done in a month. But it's over two months now, and no sign of them oney. I looked online, and in order to be able to email ameli, you have to give your no. de sécurité sociale, which of course I haven't got. Does anyone know how one gets round that? Thanks in advance.

We are moving to France in the next couple of months and would like to ask what expats in our situation do about their healthcare. Having researched this very thoroughly I know we are not eligible to apply to go into the French system for 3 months. We will not be working and are not yet in receipt of UK state pension. I have contacted a number of expat healthcare companies and the prices quoted seem very expensive. I would really like to hear from expats in a similar situatIon and have details of companies/prices That are being used. Many thanks.
