Groupe Mutuel, Association d'assureurs
Groupe Mutuel, Association d’assureurs, brings together a number of independent institutions active in healthcare and accident insurance, occupational benefits and life insurance. Created in 1993, Groupe Mutuel has roots dating well back in time since it inherited the Sociétés de Secours Mutuels (Mutual Support Societies), the first of which was set up in Saint-Maurice (VS) in 1852.
Groupe Mutuel puts its administrative infrastructure and employees at the disposal of its different companies which are legally independent and have their own respective corporate management bodies. This pooling of resources creates useful synergies from which all partner companies benefit. The mission of Groupe Mutuel is to defend interests and to manage its affiliated health insurers that offer compulsory health insurance: Mutuel Assurance Maladie SA, Philos Assurance Maladie SA, Avenir Assurance Maladie SA, EasySana Assurance Maladie SA, SUPRA-1846 SA and AMB Assurance-maladie et accidents. It also manages private insurers that provide supplemental insurance plans: Groupe Mutuel Assurances GMA SA and Mutuel Assurances SA, as well as the life insurance company Groupe Mutuel Vie GMV SA.
Groupe Mutuel is also responsible for the administration of two occupational benefits' foundations, Groupe Mutuel Prévoyance GMP and Mutuelle Valaisanne de Prévoyance.
