THE impact of changes to the French health system on people heading to France who are under retirement age is beginning to look a little clearer.
The Daily Telegraph reports that for those currently in the system they will be able to remain in it, the tougher rules will apply to non-working foreigners, such as early retirees, who move to France after the end of this month.
The Sécurité Sociale website provides a more complete explanation, in French, with point number four highlighting the changes for those set to arrive in France.
