I have just received the following email from Overseas Health Care Services:-
"Please accept this email as confirmation that an S1 certificate of entitlement has been sent to your overseas address. You will also receive information about how to register your S1 with the local authorities.
We would advise you to obtain private medical insurance to help with the cost of any treatment you may need before your S1 is registered. Please do not wait until you need treatment as you may be charged costs that cannot be refunded.
If your circumstances change it is important that you let us know. The information we’ve sent you with your S1 gives more detail about this."
Have any other immigrants from the UK received this I wonder, we have been in the “S1 system” for 10 years now have a Carte Vitale and Mutuelle all working fine. Is this sheer bureaucratic incompetence or is there something more sinister at work?
