Of the 200,000 caregivers supported by health insurance, about 87,000 will have to repay the overpayment.
Bad news for French caregivers. Health Insurance just announced on Saturday (September 4th): 43% of liberal medical staff will have to overpay. The aid device (Dipa) was commissioned in early 2020 during the first wave of Covid-19.
“We can’t delete the gun”
According to our colleagues at LCI, approximately 203,000 healthcare professionals have made the claim. They were given an average advance of 5,500 euros to cope with the decline in their income during prison. Next, social security just calculated: 87,000 liberals have an average “overpayment for repayment” of 2,700 euros, according to the LCI.
Unions are protesting this demand. But for Marguerite Cazeneuve of Health Insurance, “We can’t delete the list because it’s public money”. However, social security should remain flexible regarding the return conditions of this overpayment. Payment can be made with a maturity of 12 months upon request. “We will do everything we can to make the surgery as painless as possible for everyone,” said the organization, quoted by our colleagues.
