fully Reimburse the cost of glasses, dental crowns and hearing aids, it was one of the major campaign promises of Emmanuel Macron. We now know a little more about what that will be repaid at 100 % by the social Security and complementary health, whereas the decree on the measure known as "cost zero" was published Saturday in the official Journal.
The decree provides a list of "some of the equipment of optical, hearing aid and care of the prosthetic dental", which will be guaranteed an "access without the cost", subject to tariff ceilings. In optics, for example, the decree lays down the technical quality of the lenses eligible for a full refund, stated that: "in all cases, the support of a frame is limited to 100 euros," and that the renewal of the glasses is limited to one pair every two years, except in special cases.
hearing aids, renewable every four years, will be repaid "to the tune of the costs incurred by the insured" for the devices that belong to a class of increased support, and "a maximum of 1700 euros per hearing aid," to the other.
The decree also determines the rules which must be respected by contracts of mutual, and creates a monitoring committee of the reform to ensure the full implementation of the measures. This committee will have a hard time while the minister of Health, Agnes Buzyn, was accused in December of certain mutual insurance companies of "sabotaging" reform. She had reminded the complementary health their "commitments", in particular that of not using the reform to justify an increase of their rates.
