Bakery Dodges

I think that it may be a bit more complicated . I watch a lot of French consumer programmes.

I'm thinking that it might be a good idea to start getting together the necessary docs and info just in case I d...

Here http://annuairesante.ameli.fr/ It's the official site of CPAM. I now see that I have just repeated an earlier post. But at least I can add that I have tried it, for nothing very demanding, and it works. "Dépassements d'honoraires" could be a trap if your mutuelle doesn't cover them. But if it ...

They didn't pay up immediately and I did not receive acknowledgements of my first letter and the receipt of the returned goods. I had to sent a second letter, which I downloaded from the internet, together with evidence tha...
