Solimut is a concern of healthcare insurance organisations. Members of the healthcare insurance organisations belonging to the concern, are automatically members of Solimut.
The healthcare insurance organizations offer their members two types of healthcare insurances: the legal insurance, which is obligatory for all citizens, and additional insurances, which are not compulsory.
On 1/1/2000, the general assembly of Omnimut decides to make one of the additional insurances, Hospi Solidaire, compulsory for all its members. The insurance premium of all the members is consequently raised. Members who do not pay the part of the premium that is related to the additional insurance Hospi Solidaire, may be excluded from Omnimut and from its healthcare insurance organization.
Certain members protest against this premium raise, claiming that they do not need nor use the additional insurance, since the costs covered by it, are also covered by their group or private insurance. They see the practices of Omnimut as a forced sale.
