The General Assemblies of the MGEN group were held on 9 and 10 July 2019 at the Couvent des Jacobins in Rennes. On the agenda: the 2018 activity overview, the replacement of part of the Executive Board by delegates, the current political and regulatory situation as well as the laying the foundation stones for a new model of governance and a new economic model.

First step for adoption of adaptation measures for the economic and support model
“2018 is a year of a return to a balance for MGEN, despite an unfavourable financial environment. The MGEN group initiated work on the long-term evolution of its economic and supportive model in 2018, via the implementation of a strategic plan “MGEN tomorrow”. The Analysis of Costs and Optimisation of Results (ACOR) project for controlling costs is bearing fruit. A general effort is also made to guarantee the sustainability of our solidarity-based model,” indicates Isabelle Hébert, Director General of the MGEN group.

The commitments made by the General Assemblies
With a view to developing its economic and support model, a new home care service (SAD)will enter into force on 1 January 2020 with three ambitions: to better support its members during critical periods of life; to simplify service demand and management and to continue this care via social action when the situation requires it. The Assemblies voted to approve the creation of a new offering called “MGEN Territoires et Education” (MGEN Territories and Education). MNT and MGEN will now work together on the departmental or regional council participation agreements. The proposed offering will include 3 guarantee levels, that are all responsible, fully integrating health, social action and MGEN services for market launch in the 1st quarter of 2020. Finally, delegates approved the proposal involving the gradual phasing out of the Accès santé contract in view of the implementation of the new contributive CMU-C (complementary universal health coverage).

Towards more agile and efficient governance
A governance charter was adopted, listing 5 main principles:

  1. Governance which is representative of all members,
  2. Responsibility and transparency of authorities,
  3. Cooperation between elected activists and employees,to guarantee the balance of governance of the mutual association,
  4. Close contact to aid governance,
  5. Commitment: the key to MGEN governance.

In particular, reinforcing the General Assembly delegations to the Governing Board through statutory means was proposed to the delegates.

“We have taken a big step towards being a mutual association that is more agile and more reactive in its decision-making. The General Assembly decided to assign a larger delegation to the Governing Board to be able to respond to the development in terms of regulatory constraints and schedules imposed in an increasingly competitive environment, while remaining the heart of the democracy of our mutual association”, declares Roland Berthilier, president of the MGEN group.

Work will continue into 2019-2020, by practically implementing the principles of the governance charter and proposing a redefinition of the missions of the authorities and their coordination in particular.
