Any other British or EU retirees who get Lamal insurance via Form S1

We are looking to form a group with others who rely on Form S1 for their basic health insurance- eg, people of State retired age in their country, with NO pension, and NO salary or income coming from Switzerland. I imagine there are indeed very few of us- but would really like to join up with anyone in the same position- to discuss the implications- and perhaps club together to ask for an audience and advice from the Lawyer who clearly studied that situation carefully for the case.

A case has been reported in the Romand Consumer magazine- of a retired person from the Netherlands who sustained an injury whilst abroad (not EU)- and Lamal refused to pay. They took the case to a Lawyer in the NE Canton- and won- so has become Law in principle. The argument is that those reliant on Insurance via Form S1 should get the same level of Insurance as Swiss citizens or residents on Basic Insurance- eg up to twice the cost it would have been if treated in Switzerland. This is massively important for all of us in the same position.
