Chronic patients will spend less

The Minister of Public Health Laurette Onkelinx has just let adopt by the government a status of "chronic illness" whose goal is to radically reduce the financial impact of caring for those patients. This status will allow a refund of greater care and the patient no longer need to pay the full cost of treatment before being repaid (third-party payer).
