Tribune. The announcement of a forthcoming “great Secu” by the Minister of Health, Olivier Véran, six months before the presidential election, had aroused the hope of those who, for more than ten years, denounced the economically irrational character. and socially unjust “double payer” for the same care, and preached in the wilderness.
Unfortunately, the cold shower did not take long: Mr. Véran would have already abandoned the idea. The strong barrage of players in complementary health seems to have won the decision. The defenders of “Sécu” have not, however, said their last word. It is up to us to mobilize ourselves.
Remember the national inter-professional agreement [effectif depuis le 1er janvier] 2016, under a left-wing government, which introduced complementary company health for all employees, through tax loopholes that added to the sprawl of tax.
Continuation of disengagement
This device, presented as a “Great social advance” in return for the increased deregulation of the labor market, was seen as the continuation of the withdrawal of Social Security in favor of organizations which, although claiming solidarity, were based on the most banal insurance practices – selection of risks, age and family pricing – far from the solidarity established by the founders of Social Security.

In other words, they wanted, like Keynes with regard to annuitants, the euthanasia of mutuality. Admittedly, the mutualist movement made up for the failings of the pre-war state (even if compulsory social insurance projects were painfully born, but while remaining limited in their ambition).
It took intense lobbying from the mutual fund for, in 1947, the so-called Morice law, “Taken in the interest of the Mutuality” (at the time things were said to be unworked, without artifice of communicators), reserves a place for mutuals, in the name of the co-payment. A very political co-payment because it is difficult to understand why such a ticket would moderate the consumption of healthcare when it is reinsured by “complementary health”. Under the scientific guise, it was politics that was involved.
