The report submitted to the government by Claude Évin and Patrick Stefanini recommends that the State Medical Aid (AME) for undocumented foreigners should benefit from a strengthening of controls and "eligibility criteria", particularly with regard to family situation.


The State Medical Aid (AME) for undocumented foreigners, recently called into question by the Senate in the immigration bill, is "generally under control", but "deserves to be adapted", according to the report submitted to the government on Monday 4 December by Claude Évin and Patrick Stefanini.

The report, which underlines the "health utility" of the AME, points to the "limits and risks" of its replacement by a more restrictive "emergency medical aid" as advocated by the right. It does, however, propose a strengthening of controls and "eligibility criteria", particularly with regard to family situation.

In the wake of the publication of the document, the government stressed that "the proposals made by the rapporteurs may be the subject of a regulatory or legislative evolution in a specific text". "As a reminder, no proposal relating to the AME can be included in the immigration bill currently under consideration, as these provisions are unrelated to the purpose of the text (legislative rider)," the government said in its statement.

'Very high sensitivity'

For the rapporteurs, the AME is "a system regulated by regulation, implemented and professionally controlled by the health insurance services and which does not generate care consumption that reveals atypisms, abuses or structural fraud". However, "past progress" in terms of strengthening controls "should not exempt us from considering new measures for the future", "especially as the subject remains very sensitive", the two authors add.

The report notes that the increase in AME expenditure (which amounted to €968 million in 2022) is "largely correlated with that in the number of beneficiaries", and that average quarterly consumption "remained stable despite the increase in the cost of care", rising from "€642 in 2009 to €604 in 2022".
