Health. Rise in health insurance spending beyond 3.5% in 2023

guest on France Inter this Saturday, September 17, the Minister Delegate for Health Professions, Agnès Firmin Bodo indicated that the expected increase in health insurance expenditure for 2023 may exceed 3.5% compared to 2022.

The social security funding bill “will be on the rise with an Ondam (national objective for health insurance expenditure) which will be higher than 3.5%”said the minister.

This bill will be presented to the Council of Ministers on September 26, added Agnès Firmin Le Bodo.

The hospital system “sick for several years”, according to the Minister Delegate

The Minister also had a word for the hospital system which is “sick for several years”. Health Insurance presented measures in July to curb its spending to the tune of 1.2 billion euros next year, which will not be enough to fill a double-digit deficit. This deficit has been largely widened by the Covid-19.

After the abyssal records of 2020 (-30 billion) and 2021 (-26 billion), losses should still reach 19 billion this year and remain at more than 13 billion next year and beyond.
