The National Health Insurance Fund (CNAM) will have to cut 3,600 positions by 2022 as per an agreement negotiated with the State, says an internal note of the CNAM which Le Figaro has seen. The total workforce of this branch of the Social Security should thus go from 64,806 to 61,200 full-time equivalents between 2018 and 2022. The workforce decrease will be made possible in particular by  pooling more resources between the health insurance local funds, organised in the departmental scale. The CNAM is also planning to invest in computing by increasing this budget of 20%.
