Introducing the Healthcare Plan

logo mutuelleThe ALEBA Healthcare Plan was established on 20 October 1928, ten years after the union was founded (its original name was Sterbekasse des Luxemburger Bankbeamtenvereins or Association Luxembourgeoise des Employés de Banque – ALEB).

The articles of association were approved by the competent ministry under the name Caisse de décès de l’Association des employés de Banque on 11 July 1929. Shortly thereafter, it became a member of the Fédération Nationale des Sociétés Luxembourgeoises de secours mutuels (National Federation of Luxembourg mutual assistance companies – FSSM), which was founded on 6 July 1924 and is now the Fédération Nationale de la Mutualité Luxembourgeoise (National Federation of Luxembourg Mutual Assistance – FNML).

In 1964, in line with changes in the insurance sector, it was renamed the “Caisse de Décès de l’Association Luxembourgeoise des Employés de Banques et d’Assurances”. After ALEBA broke away from the Fédération des Employés Privés (FEP) in 1979, the Healthcare Plan, under the chairmanship of Eugène Storck, was renamed the “ALEBA Healthcare Plan”. In 1994, ALEBA’s new chairman Marc Glesener handed over the reins to Pierre Back, former secretary general of ALEBA.

Lastly, in 2001, on the instruction of the Conseil Supérieur de la Mutualité, the management of the union and the Healthcare Plan was separated. Under the chairmanship of Pierre Back, the Healthcare Plan is preparing to celebrate its 90th year as a Luxembourg healthcare insurer.

Representation

  • Fédération Nationale de la Mutualité Luxembourgeoise

At the Ordinary General Meeting of the Fédération Nationale de la Mutualité Luxembourgeoise on 6 May 2017, representatives of the FNML’s 48 mutual assistance member companies were asked to appoint four members to sit on the Board of Directors, as well as a statutory auditor.

It is clear that the ALEBA Healthcare Plan and its level of competence within the FNML continue to be held in high regard, as its chairman, Pierre Back, was re-elected as vice-chairman and Alain Back was appointed to serve as statutory auditor.

  • Caisse Médico Complémentaire Mutualiste

At the Complementary Mutual Health Fund (Caisse Médico Complémentaire Mutualiste CMCM) conference on 4th June 2016 in Bettembourg, Fernand Fischer was re-elected to the board of directors. He received the highest vote of the seven candidates. He was then elected vice president of the CMCM at the subsequent board meeting.

  • Union des Caisses de Décès Mutualistes du Centre (Union of Death Benefit Mutual Funds of Central Luxembourg)

Here too, our chairman, Pierre Back, represents the ALEBA Healthcare Plan in his role as secretary-treasurer

These appointments are testament to Fernand and Pierre’s commitment to the mutual assistance cause and the excellence of their work at the CMCM and the FNML. They also demonstrate the high level of esteem in which ALEBA is held by all mutual assistance companies.

Congratulations to Pierre, Fernand and Alain.
