Hi, my father is thinking about moving to France. He is a non-French EU citizen (not British so won't be affected by the result of the referendum) but has never paid a single penny in either taxes or social security contributions to his country of citizenship as he has never lived there (in case you are wondering why, he was born in one of its former colonies). So he can't get an EHIC card as the first thing that they ask for when getting one is his SS number, which he doesn't have. He is above 67, and has no pension whatsoever either from his non-EU country of residence or elsewhere. Would he be able to get a Carte Vitale and get reimbursed in case he goes to the hospital/ the doctor? If I will also be moving to France (before he will) and will be paying taxes and social security, does this affect his situation at all? Thanks a lot for your help - all the existing websites on SS in France seem to only include details about EU citizens WITH an EHIC.
