I call BS on the French system. It's failing. It's one of the most expensive in Europe and unsustainable. They also do not use as much hi-tech HC in Europe as we do in the US. Another reason why ours costs more. Now add in the 2000 plus mandates imposed on HC/Insurance which have driven up cost and the illegals using the Emergency Rooms. Govt intervention in HC markets are a big reason why the costs have risen. Also, BI Pharma gets protected markets.
