Some good snippets from a long document:

In France, already insufficient resources have spurred strikes and demonstrations by doctors, while health care price hikes endanger that country’s commitment to its European partners to maintain low
budget deficits. A delinquent performance by France could place the entire project of European Monetary Union in peril.

Also
like in the U.S., French workers and their employers pay for the bulk of their medical care
through premiums assessed on gross wages. French employers and their employees pay wage
levies of approximately 20%; employers contribute 13% and workers 7%.



The relatively low income of French physicians is allayed by two factors. Practice liability is greatly diminished by a tort-adverse legal system and medical schools, although extremely competitive to enter, are essentially free. Thus, French physicians enter the market with little if any debt and pay much lower malpractice insurance premiums.

Also, the new techniques require computerized information gathering and
processing systems, an area where French health care lags well behind the U.S.
