My father lives here in France, he has his health cover, but he earns too much for CMU, so he needs probably private health cover as top up, the problem is he will be 80 this year, the bank won't give him cover, i see by this site, some don't cover over 65, does anyone know of a company,that will insure him, he is only just over the platform to receive CMUC, so not loaded !!

Was looking at those Clarisonic skin cleansers, but before I decide whether to get one was hoping to hear some opinions from someone who actually has one. Any comments welcome!

Hi - can anyone tell me what the process is if a visitor wants to see a doctor? I have family visiting and the little girl was poorly last night - we think she has an ear infection and needs antibiotics. They have their EHIC and travel insurance - should they just turn up at the doctors or what?

Does anyone know what treatment is covered on your european health insurance card? Was originally admitted to hospital as an emergency, for nearly a week and they now want to admit me again for a biopsy. I do not have any other medical insurance. Should I return to england for this and further investigations/treatment? Have been on the website and it is unclear.Many thanks
