I think I am not alone in being confused about health charges and their payment in France.
As an example (me); have had carte vitale 8 years, full time resident France, retired, with UK State Pension.
I have a mutuelle in case I need serious hospital attention. I went for the basic low-level cover, understanding that teeth and optical cover might well be not worthwhile.
Of course, I understand everyone might want different cover; I would be pleased if someone could answer:
If I contracted some problem / injury that needed serious attention in hospital, then how much might I be asked to pay? How much would the mutuelle cover? Doesn’t the UK health system contribute?
I realise that a perfect answer is not possible, it is guidance I am looking for.
