Trying to get through the bureaucracy to get the Carte Vitale
My partner (we are concubins for french) has been living in France for more than 6 months and has a 1-y residency card. He is working in the UK (travels between two countries) and is trying to apply the carte vitale here.
We submitted the application and now(2 months later!) received the “Questionnaire “Recherche de droits” ressortissants europeens inactifs” that needs to be filled in and supplementary info should be sent as well.
So the papers ask:
Beneficiez-vous d’un formulaire E104/S040.
Q: As I understand it’s the statement of the national ins contributions in the UK. Does it mean that we need to get one? What stands behind this question
“Si vous benefisiez d’un regime d’assurance maladie d’un Etat de l’EU -> Merci de Fournir une photocopie de votre formulaire S1”.
Q: I’m trying to find info about this S1 and looks like it’s needed if the person is retired, that he is not. Can you please advise why this is asked by CNAM
- my main concern is that they’ll strike him off somehow from UK NHS records. Therefore when he travels back to UK he won’t be covered there. Can you please clarify if having carte vitale doesn’t affect his rights to the UK health system
