Being pensioners doesn't "load" your mutuelle costs. The prices are generally quoted as x per month per adult and y per minor (usually about half price for those under 18). There are literally hundreds of mutuelles, all with varying plans, but they all start from the same base (i.e. covering the difference between the sÚcu reimbursement and the standard fee schedule, which most doctors tend to adhere to - those that charge more must disclose that fact up front).
Cheers,
