In October 2022, the dynamism of spending continues

The vital card allows you to be reimbursed for health expenses.

Health insurance spending continues to grow. In the first ten months of 2020, health reimbursements from layoffs increased by 5.6%, driven by daily allowances which increased by 16.8%.

The National Health Insurance Fund has published data on health reimbursements for October 2022. They confirm the trends observed in recent months, i.e. a variation in spending that remains high but lower than in 2021. City care increased by 5.5% in first ten months of 2022 and 5.0% on an annual basis.

In detail, general care increased by 3.1% from the beginning of the year, specialized care by 3.7% and dental care by 3.6%. Reimbursements for medical tests continue to decline after breaking year-to-date records due to the pandemic. They are down 18.6% from January to October. Transport reimbursements took a long time to recover, but show an evolution of 8.1% in the first ten months of 2022.

YI on the rise

Daily allowances (IJ) remain very high, with an increase of 16.8% in the first ten months of the year and 14.2% on an annual basis. The health crisis could partly explain this dynamism, due to the wave of omicrons at the beginning of the year. On the other hand, Cnam reports that even IJ’s payments remain very high apart from the pandemic effect. In October alone, they reached 1.27 billion euros, or 13.5% more than in October 2021.

Reimbursed medicines show an increase of 7.8% in the first twelve months of the year. Health insurance indicates that reimbursements for antigen tests, self-tests and masks have increased by 22.9% since the beginning of the year. This growth was notably seen during Q1 2022 due to the omicron variant, but test volumes have been slowing significantly since Q2 2022.
