Social charges, health coverage for independents
Questions for the independents out there. Can I run this by you to make sure we've understand what we need to sign up for?
1) For social charges I've received documents from zenito and partena. The charges are legally mandated right? So does it matter which one we go with? Any opinions on either one?
2) For the medical coverage. As I understand it we have to choose a mutualité which will then reimburse for both expenses covered by social security as well as whatever 'extra' plan we take on with them. Is this right? Can we sign up for the minimum legal coverage with one and then take supplemental with another, or do you always take both coverages from the same place? The two we are looking at are mutualité chrétienne as we have children under 7, or DKV tho I find it quite expensive.
Sorry if the questions are dense, trying to get my head around it all. Have just arrived from France so bureaucracy doesn't phase me, but the system here seems to be structured quite differently and want to make sure I'm not missing the plot somewhere.
