You forgot to mention again that the French system only pays you AFTER you have paid the doc, and only gives you 70% back. If you want more back, you pay hundreds more (a month) for your own private insurance plan on top of VAT, the 7.5% tax on your pay.......<i/>

I could have sworn we were talking about Canada, and here we are blathering about France. Odd, that.
