It was a campaign promise of Jean-Luc Moudenc when he was a candidate for his re-election for mayor of Toulouse: the establishment of a municipal mutual for those over 60 years old.

But we know that there is 20% of seniors in Toulouse, and understand, many of them are eligible, ”explained Patricia Bez, deputy mayor. Who adds: “The partnership with the mutual company will be for a period of two years (renewable once, editor’s note) and will result in an evaluation ”. This agreement “will not give rise to no financial participation from the town hall of Toulouse ”.
