Healthcare

The Caisses Sociales de Monaco is the compulsory social insurance scheme in the principality which gives entitlement to the public healthcare system. Employers have to contribute 24% of their gross payroll for healthcare and employees 15% of their earnings. This entitles contributors and their families to reimbursement of between 80% and 100% of the cost of medical procedures, prescriptions, dentistry, rehabilitation, pregnancy and childbirth, and some hospitalizations. French and Italian citizens can use public health facilities if they have contributed to their home country's state health care scheme. The Carte Vitale, which is issued on registration with the Caisses Sociales de Monaco, is used to record administrative, not clinical, information about patients. Patients must register with a doctor employed through the scheme.

Total health expenditure in the country was only about 4% in 2014.[5]
