Re: Health Insurance - first 3 months...once again

'La date d'arrivée' does not = the date of the residence permit, does it? You have to register with the Commune within 2 weeks of arrival max- the fact the residence permit may not be issued immediately is irrelevant, it is the date of arrival that counts. I agree that the backdating to the beginning of the month of arrival is clearly optional, as implied by the word 'peut' (can) and not 'doit' (must)- the rest is clear. Assura insisted we paid from the 1st of the month of arrival, we arrived on 29th- but apparently they could have waved this.

Totally unfair, as said by Urs- to allow expats up to 6 months, eg 3 full free months + month of arrival, for free. Would you do the same for car insurance or ECAP, etc? At a time when premiums are going up through the roof, and savings having to be made, it does not make sense.
