Your carte vitale contains all the information necessary to prove your entitlement to the French health service.

It should be updated at least once a year, particularly after change in circumstances (marriage, change of address, bank…)

Simply ask for a ‘mise à jour’ next time you visit your local pharmacy, or slot it into a ‘borne’ found in some hospitals or your local CPAM (Caisse Primaire d’Assurance Maladie.)… et Robert est ton oncle!
