Spent 6 days in Hospital, 3 in Intensive Care. - initially Leveque and transferred to Langon. About a month later received a bill for 1500 euros for the Ambulance - which almost gave me another heart attack - Swiss Life, our Mutuelle told us that it should have been sent direct to them. They paid it and contributed to the hospital costs not met by the State.
Strongly recommend Swiss Life
Glad the system worked for you! Swiss Life has a good reputation bit seems expensive. Will add to my comparison, thanks
As a total diversion to the subject your post made me smile broadly. A sapeur is also slang for a flamboyantly dressed african man, so I had a vision of you being escorted to hospital surrounded by colourfully dressed characters in very snappy suits!
