I am an ex-pat American living in France. I am curious to know what other ex-pats do for healthcare here. I am retired & on Medicare, which covers me when I am in the states (not often), but not in France. That has worked ok so far - I am healthy & I visit my doctor, dentist, etc when I am in the states. What happens when I get sick here? I understand the healthcare in France is the best in the world, but as far as I can tell, I cannot access it unless I pay out of pocket. Has anyone else faced & solved this problem?
