With there being a 12.8 million Euro deficit in France’s 2015 budget, the French government announced on 24th September plans for the Projet de Loi de Financement de la Sécurité Sociale 2016 (PLFSS; Social Security Finance Bill 2016). For the second consecutive year, the PFLSS cost-containment measures include a heavy focus on drug expenditure as part of the government’s strategy to bring down the debt.
