  1. Thankyou Cooperlola for your prompt reply. I have one more question which I hope you can help me with. It is not personal, so may be of interest to others. I am returnig to live in the U.K. anyway. At the moment I don' t know when, as I have to sell my house first, and that could take some considerable time. Assuming that I'm not allowed to stay in the C.M.U. I could be back living in the U.K.  from April  and reregistering with them for health cover etc.and using this house as a holiday home, until it is sold.  I will naturally inform all relevant  French authorities of the change of use to the house. How long can I visit this house, without incurring the wrath of the French Authorites. I know that all bills for utilites and Habitation taxes etc have to be paid. I live in a fairly rural area so I know that it would be very easy for people to check on how often the house is being used Thank you Brit girl
  2. We were not entitled to E106 because my husband had not paid enough class1 contributions in the relevant qualifying period. The class 3 we paid did not count. We did not have E121. I am not eligible for my state retiremnt pension for another 10 years. We were affiliated to the CMU early last year, and had the 'new style' Carte Vitales with our photos on them. Hope that helps.

  3. Widows. I have been following the health care changes with a great deal of interest.  As 'in actifs' and living off a govt. penion paying into URSSAf  etc and paying  top up insurance, we thought we were paying our way. Sadly in June of 2007 we discovered  that my husband had kidney cancer, and that it was also very aggressive. He died at the end of October  aged 55. .I  went to our local C.P.A.M office at Carhaix yesterday, who confirmed that as from the 31st March I would have to take out private health insurance, but also added that I would receive written confirmation of this sometime in February. I have to say that I,m sure she wasn't aware of the full implications of the latest rulings and was probably telling me as much as she knew herself.. We had not been resident in France for 5 years. I know that I am able to live off my entitlement to my husband's pension, but I thought that my Carte Vitale  would be O.K. for a year following his death, whilst I sorted out all the necessary bits and pieces, including , hopefully,selling the house before I returned to the U.K. I can only say that the care my husband received was superb and nothing was too much trouble. Any scans etc. were done as quickly as possible and the results made known very quickly. At all times were both treated with great coutesy and respect. If anyone has any further information, then I'd love to here from you. Many Thanks. Brit girl
