Cut of 1.6 billion in 2013-2014 to the Health Fund. Extensions for the contracts of precarious workers, for the remuneration of the drug supply chain and for the pharmaceutical payback. The risk management units spring up. Allocated 275 million for the non-self-sufficiency fund and reduced the spending ceiling for medical devices. THE TEXT.

27 DEC – The provision concerning the state budget for the financial year 2013 and the multi-year budget for the three-year period 2013-2015 (and related notes of changes) has become law.
