Homeopathy, to be deremboursé?

The high medical council for testing medicines of France has decided that homeopathy does no measurable good, so the government wants to remove it from the list of medicines which can be remboursé, to save the taxpayer money.

So, will it bite the bullet and go for 0% or go on a staged process which would be at 15%? If the latter , then the mutuelle will make up the shortfall unless it is 0%.

Except for those who have an ALD, who would continue to have full refunds. DUHHHH!

Macron himself may decide, remembering no doubt that the biggest manufacturer, Boiron, employs 1200 plus people.

1200 from a population of over 60 million. You could say that's a homeopathic dose.

😜 The dose is costing the taxpayer €130 million a year. A nice saving if they have the guts to do it.

Re: Homeopathy, to be deremboursé?

I never know quite what to make of homeopathy. Our toubib in France would happily prescribe tiny tiny tablets, of the stuff, several to be taken at a time, several times a day.

Snake oil, or doing it's stuff, we always got better anyway. I know our pharmacist believed in it, and why wouldn't she, must have been a right little earner. Or maybe she really did, how could one know.

I understand the why's of it, but it working like a vaccine...... ? dunnowBlink [blink]

Sugar pills have the same effect as homeopathy. That is they work well for the percentage that were going to get better anyway. I'm surprised they still reimburse it at all.. that and the two weeks at a thermal cure.. The manufacturers won't go out of business because there will be plenty of people still prepared to pay for their snake oil.

Are you sure black mamba is still allowed with PC Ness and racism. Mamba of colour surely?
