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). 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.

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.

**Pierre BACK named vice-chairman of the Fédération Nationale de la Mutualité Luxembourgeoise (FNML)

During the board meeting of the FNML on 13th July 2016, Pierre Back was elected unanimously to the role of vice-chairman.

Both these nominations reflect Fernand and Pierre’s engagement for the mutualist movement, as well as the excellence of their work within the SMCM and the FNML. They also show the high esteem in which ALEBA is held by all mutual assistance organisations.
