I became a French resident a couple of years ago and have a Carte Vitale. I’m going to be geting my state pension for the first time soon and will therefor be eligable to register an S1 with my local CPAM. I know this will have some benefits in paying some lower social charges. When registered does the S1 cover 100% of all medical costs and therefor no top up medical assurance in needed?
No. Makes no change.
The difference is that the UK pays the social security element rather than France.
