The big five

Can anyone tell me the big five ailments that are covered for free in hospital? We are now in possession of the S1 and the first attestation from cpam but dont have mutuel as yet. I am assuming that if you fall ill with one of these you would not be liable for a bill?

Thank you Terry.

Merci Simon et Terry.

Go to Useful Links/Health and look at the ALD section Julie. You don't automatically get 100% refund. Your doc has to fill in the paperwork and it has to be approved by the Secu.

There's also a lot of basic info like a guide to the French social security system on the Health page.

if I remember rightly, it is a stay over 30days in hospital, cancer, major surgery, transplants, heart problems, certain mental health issues and certain physical issues.
