The price of medical consultations will increase by autumn 2023. According to an “arbitral settlement”, it will be necessary to pay 26.50 euros to the general practitioner, against 25 euros today.

The cost of medical consultations will increase by 1.50 euro in the fall of 2023, according to the arbitration rules which organizes the relationship between liberal doctors and Health Insurance, written and presented on April 24, 2023 to the 6 unions of liberal doctors by Annick Morel, former general inspector of social affairs (Igas) and former president of the High Council for the Future of Medicare (HCAAM). For general practitionersthe basic consultation will change from 25 euros to 26.50 euros, which will represent an increase of +6%. Consultations at medical specialists will also be more expensive. In this context, the Minister of Health François Braun “is pleased that the text proposed by the arbitrator includes significant advances for the improvement of the health of the French people” and must approve it in the coming days. However, the unions of liberal doctors all demanded, at least, 30 euros or even 50 euros for some. Physicians who do not wish to be subject to the arbitration rules can let their Cpam know by mail. Otherwise, they will be tacitly governed by the latter.
