Premiums to rise for complementary health insurance

The Mutualités of France, the mutual insurance companies that provide supplementary health insurance for 38 million French people will raise their rates by an average of 5% in 2010. This comes after they assured their customers this past October that rates would go up no more than 3.9%. Their reasons: costs associated with H1N1 and added charges for hospitalizations.

The price rises will come in part from increases in drug charges and coverage of a 2 euro rise in hospital charges.
