A COMMUNAL MUTUAL IN MENTON
Menton, a comparatively rich metropolis on the Côte d’Azur, launched initially of the month a municipal mutual that would quickly be prolonged and supplied to the 70,000 inhabitants of its agglomeration, in response to the Covid-19 well being disaster.
“Given the well being disaster, we realized that individuals had been reluctant to hunt therapy, for the youngest”, described to AFP Dr. Patricia Martelli, Assistant for Social Motion and Well being. “For the oldest, who want dental and ocular prostheses, (…) we assume that Social Safety will now not have the ability to pay every part as a result of it incurs prices such that it’s going to create an abysmal deficit”.
“Initially, it was for individuals who do not need mutual insurance coverage. However on arrival, it’s for individuals who inform us that they will now not pay theirs”, observes the elected LR, Deputy Mayor Jean-Claude Guibal, 80, reelected for a sixth time period in 2020.
