For some, the coronavirus is a curse that never ends. In the Val-d'oise, a citizen must face a new test when he has already recently lost his father, carried away by the Covid-19. The family of this bus driver has received last may a bill of over € 7,000 on the part of the hospital Saint-Louis, located in the 10th arrondissement of Paris. It is here that her father had been hospitalized for ten days, at the end of April, in intensive care, just before dying, reports Le Parisien.
The invoice indicated that the family of the deceased had to settle the score of 7 036,80 euros, corresponding to 20 % of the cost which are not reimbursed by social Security on a total bill of 35 184 euros. However, the patient had no mutuelle to cover this cost. The family had to settle the sum, but the wife of 70 years receives only 560 euros pension. His son, the bus driver can't really do much, gaining just € 1,800 a month. He also believes that he should not have to pay such a sum.
