Before leaving France, I called my French health insurance (namely MGEN), telling them that I’d be in the USA for 6 months, and they told me like, “well sure, no problem, just fill these two forms and email them back to us, we will move you to our international section real quick and you’ll be fine”. One month later, and almost 4 weeks after my arrival, they finally processed my request and I’m about to be moved to the said section… as soon as I pay by check a certain extra amount of money. Wait… you know that I’m abroad and that I can’t seriously send this check, right ?
