Hospital transport financing, problems in the heart
Amendments to Article 80 transfer the responsibility for financing hospital transport from the patient to healthcare facilities. Social security now pays a "transport" budget to authorities that choose a private emergency service instead of a customer.
This measure is intended to prevent fraud, but emergency workers are accused of destroying their autonomy and working conditions, as hospitals should participate in various transport companies. Smaller ambulance companies may be at a disadvantage compared to the prices offered by the large ambulance fleet.
This is what one of the demonstrators said on the first morning in the French blue"Uberization [son] profession ":
"These doors are available to large groups who are ready to make significant discounts to resume work. We, having regulated tariffs, are even more difficult to even get a 10% discount, while large groups can close a 30% discount that will slowly kill us."
Health Minister Agnès Buzyn dismissed concerns. "I was very watchful in order not to encourage uberization and to protect against what they might think", their profession was confirmed by the minister, invited to the public hearing on Monday night. The government proposes that a "Hospital, for example, there are two patients coming from one village" in order to impose a common vehicle on these two nations, rather than letting everyone choose an ambulance and reimbursing social security money. "It's not uberization, it's rationalization" confirmed by the minister who promised "Continue to work" on this topic.
