Artificial ligaments, until now reimbursed according to manufacturer's price, have been added to the French TIPS listing of price-controlled products. They will be 100% reimbursed up to Fr 5,000 ($950) and their fixing systems reimbursed up to Fr 500 each. Some 10,000 artificial ligaments are implanted each year in France, according to national medical insurers CNAM.
