Take eurokiné's advice and see if his GP will send off to apply for 100% reimbursement via his carte vitale.

he will probably be eligible for an "affection longue durée" cover from the secu for his heart problems too which would give him 100%cover for anything associated with that heart problem (drugs, tests drs visits etc) He should ask his GP or cardiologist about it as a doctor has to make the demand (special form to fill in)

I thought it was the case that any operation which is considered vital is reimbursed 100 percent by social security. A few years ago I had a lump removed from my thyroid as they were worried it might have been malignant, which it turned out not to be. I had no mutuelle and I didn't pay a thing. I was told that this was because it could have been life threatening.

As I understand you pay 20% of the ops xrays ect and 20 euros a day for food. It would good to hear from other people. On TF ONE the other day  they  said that over 30% of french people do not have any exta cover.

They may not be allowed to refuse, but you do need to complete a health history form, on your honour, and based on that they can make it more or less expensive......

Suggest he takes out a mutuelle, double quick! Mutuelles aren't allowed to refuse cover on the grounds of pre-existing conditions...
