Health care for beneficiaries is the same as provided to asylum seekers, which is the same provided to French citizens. The difficulties encountered by beneficiaries are not specific to their status but are typical of structural dysfunctions identified within the French health care system (see Reception Conditions: Health Care).

In the context of COVID-19, testing and vaccine campaigns did not provide for any distinction according to nationality and legal status and have therefore been available for BIPs if they meet priority criteria.[1]
