The Story so far...

The

story so far, as we understand it (put together by Cooperlola, thanks

)

LAST

UPDATED 27.1.2008 (changes in red)

THE

EARLY RETIRED

Anybody

who has an E121 is unaffected. However,

should your E121 have been issued as a result of your being in

receipt of Incapacity benefits from the UK, and you should lose this

at any time in the future, the situation remains unclear, but is

under investigation at present. It is likely that, if resident since

23rd November 2007, you will be allowed CMU entry, but

this is yet to be fully confirmed.

Anybody

arriving in France with an E106, or anybody currently on an

E106, will benefit from state healthcare for the duration of the

validity of their E106.

In

a complete turn-around from the previous position, the French health

minister has now agreed that anybody who was legally resident in

France on 23rd November 2007, will be allowed access to

CMU, on expiry of their E106.

The

method by which entry is gained is unclear, as no official

instructions have yet been issued to CPAMs. Once again, this is the

subject of clarification, and may take some time to be finalised.

For

those who arrived after this date, once their E106 cover expires

they will lose all entitlement to state healthcare in France.

They will then have to take out full private health insurance, to

cover them until UK state pensionable age and/or receipt of an E121. 

This

insurance must comply with the French specifications, detailed here: http://www.legifrance.gouv.fr/WAspad/UnArticleDeCode?code=CSECSOCL.rcv&art=L321-1

Anybody

arriving in France without an E106 will have to take out private

insurance immediately.

French

insurance companies are beginning to offer full health care

packages. 

To

keep up to date with current news, and for information about the

current appeals procedures for CMU entry for the early-retired

non-French EU citizen, please visit:
www.frenchhealthissues.eu

FRENCH

RESIDENCY

After

5 years permanent, legal and uninterrupted residence, guaranteed

entry into the appropriate section of the

French healthcare system
.

EMPLOYED

If

you are employed, and pay the appropriate cotisations, then you can

enter or remain in the French system and will enjoy the same

rights as a French national, similarly employed.

BUSINESS

If

you run a registered business, and are paying cotisations, you can

enter or remain in the French system and will enjoy the same rights

as a French national running a similar business.

SIGNING

ON

There

is potential to "sign on" as unemployed in France. 

After a period of time, this may qualify you for benefits through the

French system (CMU)  However, this is dependent upon financial

and employment status so may be of limited interest.

 

If

anyone has further clarification on any of the above, please PM

Cooperlola, or any of the mods, and we will amend the text above.
