    I have been here 8 years and still don’t understand it. Hubby had his 65th birthday in October so was sent a S1 form from DWP which we sent to the CPAM office in Brest. Not long after I tried signing in to my Ameli.fr account and it told me I am no longer affiliated! So, I’ve no idea what I am now affiliated to. We are early-retired and have never worked in France.

    My Carte Vitale still works though.

    Marie, your husband should now be covered as a retiree and you as a dependent, I think CPAM now issue separate accounts for spouses that are eligible for state healthcare.  Do you pay for private healthcare at the moment?

    We’ve been in it ever since we arrived in December 2010 and everything ran really smoothly. Now that hubby is 65 and had a S1 to send to the CPAM it’s all gone a bit wrong. Our Mutuelle is blaming CPAM and vice versa. Thankfully, we are still receiving any reimbursements. We have decided to change our Mutuelle to MMA (we have car and house insurance already with them and they are very good, with a local office here in Roscoff).So we are hoping that it may all correct itself, fingers crossed!
