Good afternoon SFN
Again I have been afraid to answer this discussion!
I am a member to SFN and enjoy reading the articles from other members and the input from James and Catherine. However the only discussions that I can really take part of regard health in France (that’s all I know).
My job is to help expats integrate the French system (CPAM, RSI, CMU) and orientate them to the best possible Top-Up or Full Private cover for their needs.
Unfortunately, my advice on forums has often been mistaken as a cheap sales technique.
I believe I can help and this is why.
Thanks to the “Expat mentality”, our premiums stay considerably lower than local agents with good levels of cover because our clients tend to use the policy less for minor things like coughs and colds in comparison to an average French national. As a result, our negotiating power as a broker is greater and we get better premiums and level of cover for our clients that can’t be found anywhere else in France.
If I can help in any way regarding the S1, NHS, CPAM, RSI or CMU all of our services are totally free of charge. Should you wish to take out a policy with us, your monthly premiums are paid directly to your insurance company (as if you had signed-up with a French agent). In return they remunerate SOFICAS for looking after you, in English forever.
The website explaining the system as well as a downloadable Health Guide can be accessed via my page.
Always remember to ask for Tony MASON and mention the SFN when you contact us and I will look after you personally.
