Hi can anyone "help" I am so confused. situation as follows! I now live 365 days per year in France. which means I can be covered by S1. and pay for a top up Insurance if necessary. (Not sure yet but think the S1 form has now been completed correctly from UK I will take them to CPAM office tomorrow. ) I have been waiting 3 months for this! My husband who pays UK NIC (works in UK and other countries) He comes home some weekends and holidays I naturally assumed he would also be covered by the S1. But I now understand he should be using a E111. Is this is true and if he is using the E111 can he get a topup Insurance on this. In the likelyhood he was ill or hospitalised then I would expect him to be treated In France with me rather than UK I would very much appreciate any help on this - I seem to be knocked from all areas.!!
hi, i am after an english speaking dentist anywhere in the charente.I heard there was one in confolens but she does not seem to speak any more english than my own dentist in chasseneuil , which is not enough.It is for the usual stuff but not in this case. The problem is I have a gum condition which he is not really sorting out and I cannot get him to understand what is going on so he can give the correct treatment.I do speak reasonable french, but unless you are nearly fluent, medical terms will loose most people. I have heard there is a dentist that speaks good english in angouleme somewhere.Does anyone know who this is. I really dont care where the dentist practices, if there is anyone out there who can help and knows one who can speak good english anywhere, I would be obliged.
Just a note to those who may not know ... many medications are only reimbursed 15% by the CPAM but 85% by the top up insurance. Many people think all prescribed medication is reimbursed between 60 and 70% but it isn't. However, 'non-reimbursable' medication is reimbursed by your mutuelle. Just thought this may help those of you who don't have mutuelle perhaps reconsider. I need 3 medications on a permanent basis which are only reimbursable 15% by the CPAM.
I need a Doctor near Lorigne? I have moved to France in the last few weeks although haven't yet applied for residency (will be doing). I have and EIC and holiday insurance cover at the moment but need to see a doctor asap. Can I use my EIC if I'm not an 'official resident' yet (only moved across in October so not got the 3 month eligibility yet)? Also, can anyone recommend a local English speaking Doctor who would be able to help with a stye on my eye that is very infected (not a pretty sight) and has lasted for over a week despite bathing in salt water/using tea bags etc. HELP - sods law that I've not had a stye since I was a child and then get one in our first week moving across that just wont go and I don't have a clue what to do.... Any help very gratefully received!!
We live in the Confolens area and for some reason we have never managed to register with a dentist. Can anyone recommend a good dentist in the area, ideally English speaking, but being good is most important. I know that you will have to email me directly with any recommendations as we can't put these up on this site.Also I have not been able to work out if in France they do check- ups and have hygienists in the way they do in the UK? Thanks for any help and advice anyone can offer.
Anyone in the Jonzac/Mirambeau areas with a diagnosis of Parkinsons disease ? my husband has just been diagnosed and I would just like to chat with anyone with inside knowledge of the ins and outs and what to expect in France (provided we don't have to return to the UK after Brexit !!) ....am intending to go to the next Parkinson.fr meeting in Jonzac, but just wanted to know if there is anyone English speaking who has experience of this please ? Thankyou
I know one cannot mention businesses by name but I have just been to the dentist in L'Absie (there's only one - he's in the phonebook) and just wanted to say that he is a real professional and very thorough. His practice is ultra modern and he does have an assistant - which many dentists do not have. My particular problem extraction required quite a lot of work and I felt nothing apart from the usual discomfort of trying to open my mouth as wide as a hippopotamus Worth traveling a few miles to. (Also, he was able to see me within a fortnight).
