In reality, if you take a look at treatments received, no fewer than 20 million people are covered for chronic diseases, 35% of   all   insurees  covered b y the G ener al R eg ime . 60% of Assurance Maladie’s expenditures are currently connected with treatment of chronic diseases, a total of €84 billion.
