Can a Canadian married to a UK citizen, and both resident in France, both with a titre de séjour, and both listed (named) on form E121, obtain the same kind and degree of health cover (equivalent to the Carte Vitale) as the UK citizen? ( both retired and both self-supporting)

Hi ronw3665, Yes, the coverage will be the same for both you and your spouse. "If you're married and your spouse is eligible for cover under form E121, your spouse's entitlement is extended to you as a right, called an ayant droit." http://www.expatica.com/source/site_article.asp?subchannel_id=29&story_id=1029&name=French+social+security+system "Ayant droit vivant sous le toit de l?assuré" http://www.cnmss.fr/Cerfa-pdf/guide_assure.pdf You might get a kick out of Babel Fish's translation of the above phrase. It's funny but actually manages to get across the correct meaning: "Having alive right under the roof of the policy-holder" http://babelfish.altavista.com/ Additional Links of Interest: The French State Healthcare System: http://www.exeterfriendly.co.uk/pdfs/newpdfs/New_French_State_Healthcare_System_1_9_04.pdf Healthcare in France http://www.frenchentree.com/fe-health/home.asp British Embassy in France: Social Security and Health Care http://www.britishembassy.gov.uk/servlet/Front?pagename=OpenMarket/Xcelerate/ShowPage&c=Page&cid=1065720773216 Are you a UK state pensioner spending more than 3 months living outside the United Kingdom? http://www.dh.gov.uk/PolicyAndGuidance/International/OverseasVisitors/OverseasVisitorsGeneralArticle/fs/en?CONTENT_ID=4080756&chk=rntN6K "If you are receiving a UK state pension, you will not have to make payments to the CMU as long as you have an E121 form.
