She should register her S1.

There's a kind of pecking order of eligiblity. She's only entitled to be covered as your dependent if she has no healthcare entitlement of her own. Since she now does have healthcare entitlement of her own, via the S1, she is no longer entitled to be covered as your dependent.

It comes to the same thing from where you're standing, but it makes a big difference to the authorities. If you don't do it right and you try to keep her registered with the wrong caisse, then if / when it is picked up her healthcare could end up blocked and then you would have problems backtracking and sorting it out.
