The French National Assembly has adopted an amendment to improve the health care of Moroccan pensioners, including those who are established in the country.
This amendment fits within the framework of the draft budget of the Social Security which was adopted in second reading by the French National Assembly by 39 votes against 24.
Indeed, this text provides for an extension of the assumption of health care costs for Algerian, Moroccan and Tunisian retirees who have worked in France for decades before, for some, to return to their country of origin, said the French Minister of Health, Agnès Buzyn. He will return to the Senate in new reading, before his final reading scheduled in the National Assembly on Monday, 3 December.
It concerns the remaining 330,000 pensioners, 240,000 of whom reside in the Maghreb.
For him, “they were treated distinctly from all others, which was not normal”, citing the obligation to reside on French territory to benefit from health coverage.
