The evolution of the benefits of CERN’s Health Insurance Scheme (CHIS)

Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to invite you to a public meeting organized by HR Department, which will take place on Friday 23 September 2011 at 14:30 in the Main Auditorium (500/1-001). A welcome coffee will be available from 14:00.

The subject of this meeting will be “The evolution of the benefits of CERN’s Health Insurance Scheme (CHIS) as from 1 January 2012”.

While maintaining the basic principles of mutuality and freedom of choice offered by CERN’s Health Insurance Scheme, changes to be introduced include the replacement of the annual deductible by a progressive reimbursement rate, changes to the reimbursement rates in case of hospitalisation in a public hospital (private and semi-private sectors) as well as to the conditions of optical and dental care.

The presentation of the main changes will be made by Philippe Charpentier, Chairperson of the CERN Health Insurance Supervisory Board (CHIS Board), and followed by a question and answer session.


I hope to see as many of you as possible at the meeting.

Best regards,

Anne-Sylvie Catherin

Head, Human Resources Department
