Has anybody been in this position and can advise? I became auto entreprenure from the 1st Jan. I have recieve two letters from RSI written a day apart from two offices in different parts of France asking for the same docs to be sent to both. What an efficient lot They require a translated copy of my birth certificate that must show my Mother and Father's names. Here lies the problem as i have only the short version showing my name and place/date of birth.I was born in 1958.At the time these short versions were for children who were born out of marrage or where the father was not known. However, i do know my parents very well indeed and they are still alive and well. It was just that they had only been married 3 years and had just bought a house when i arrived so were very short of cash. They opted for a short certificate because these were much cheaper. No problem - til now. So, does any body how I might get over this? Alan
Hi There, My husband and I are looking for an English speaking doctor & dentist near Magalas. Our French is decent but not great with medical terms at all. If anyone could help that would be amazing. My e-mail is email@example.com. Thank you in advance.
Has anyone ever got a UK prescription for glasses made up by a French optician? If so, did the Mutuelle approve the expense and reimburse you for the glasses? I ask because it is so hard to get an appointment with an optometrist here but I am going to the Uk in a few weeks and could get an appointment in Boots with no problem! I am wondering, though, if the Mutueele would approve of this.

I wonder if anyone can give me some sort of advice or point me in the right direction. I intend to move to France in the near future with my family to start up a gite business. Obviously, we won't have an immediate income and won't be able to provide proof of income until we file our first tax return. My concern is that, from what I have read, you can only become part of the state health scheme if you can prove that you have at least 3 months worth of income. Does anyone know if there are special circumstances when starting up your own business or do you simply have to obtain private healthcare cover until such time as you are able to prove your income? We will have a lump sum in the bank. I don't know if this would help? Thanks in advance. Carsica
Hello all. My family and I are moving from the U.S. to the Languedoc region (exact village to be decided!) in early January and we're in the process of deciding about health insurance. My husband is a U.K. citizen but has never lived there, so we'll need to get private coverage and I'm wondering if there is anyone out there who can recommend a company offering decent coverage in France and if most doctors/hospitals in the area accept it easily. We obviously would like it to be affordable, but as long as it's less than what we pay here (astronomical!) we'll be happy!
