Hi there, I need some urgent advice if possible and not sure if anyone has been in a similar situation. I run a business in the UK and seconded myself to France in November 2015 for an initial period of two years with regular trips back to head office in the UK to work (I still pay tax and NI in the UK and nothing in France so far).
I applied for an S1 health form in January 2016 for my wife and I and it aws promptly issued up until 10/1/2017. In December I re-applied (we have had a child in the meantime) for all 3 of us and it seems now that the Derpartment of Work and Pensions have rejected my form (they sent a letter to me in December to that effect but I have still to receive it) and asked the French authorities to make a decision on my healthcare status (something which I know will take months to get!). My questions are:
Has anybody had a similar thing where their S1 form was rejected and if so what was the solution? I am particularly worried about having to pay charges in France but will cross that bridge if it comes to it.
I could re-submit my S1 form and hope that they take a different view but am not sure if there is a black mark against my name when I ring up!
Any advice or thoughts most welcomed.
