Introducing the Healthcare Plan
The ALEBA Healthcare Plan was established on 20 October 1928, ten years after the union was founded (its original name was “Sterbekasse des Luxemburger Bankbeamtenvereins”).
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, which was founded on 6 July 1924 and is now the Fédération Nationale de la Mutualité Luxembourgeoise (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 celebrated in 2018 its 90th year as a Luxembourg healthcare insurer.
The articles currently in force are available here. A draft of the new statutes will be presented to the General Assembly on September 18, 2020. You can consult them here.
The ALEBA Healthcare Plan is intended to provide its members the following benefits:
–Financial assistance in the event of illness, accident, hospitalization or dental-treatment, this in accordance with the settlement of the social fund.
