Advocate General Opinion in Case C437/09 AG2R Prévoyance

Full-text

 a preliminary reference from the French district court of Perigoux asking whether a compulsory supplementary healthcare scheme is subject to EU competition law: eThe Advocate General considered that a provision making affiliation to a supplementary healthcare scheme compulsory, and an addendum introduced by the public authorities at the request of organisations representing employers and workers making affiliation to a single body, designated to manage the supplementary healthcare scheme, with no possibility for a company to be granted a waiver of the affiliation obligation, compulsory comply with Articles 101, 102 and 106 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU).f

fArticle 101 was not applicable to the case. As regards Article 102, although the body designated to manage the supplementary healthcare scheme operated on strong principles of solidarity, on balance, the Advocate General concluded that it constituted an undertaking within the meaning of EU competition law. As the holder of a legal monopoly for the provision of determined insurance services in a professional sector in a member state, that body also held a dominant position. A restriction of competition arose from the grant to it of exclusive rights to manage the supplementary health insurance scheme. However, the Advocate General considered that, considering the social function of the insurance scheme, this fell within the scope of the exception provided for in Article 106(2) of the TFEU.f [from PLC Competition]
