Health is our primary duty in life!
is the largest Italian healthcare mutual aid
by number of members
Thanks to a modern, well-experimented management system, members are guaranteed correct, rapid access to information and early diagnosis, a real sore point of the NHS. Unlike insurance companies, mutual aid funds like MBA are no-profit organisations, regulated by legislation that is founded on law no. 3818 of 15 April 1886.
They accept people of any age, profession, in any state of health or medical history, without distinction. The mutual aid promoters of MBA, more than 3000 in Italy, provide information about healthcare subsidies and spread the culture of mutual aid alongside that of prevention. MBA, consistently with its own mission, collaborates with no-profit organisations, actively taking part in supporting charity activities.
We work to defend a person's right to health and wellbeing: the goal is to guarantee this right to each member and patient in their lifetime. in the services sector, Mutua MBA is committed to creating an inclusive welfare system, complementary to the NHS, that is integrated with public and private no-profit entities and is open and continuous in the working world and civil society.
We promote and support the link with the territory and with all expressions of civil society and contributes to the development of relations between people and providers who can provide answers to their needs, thus aiding the cohesion, development and social services.
We are a Mutual Aid company and a Service Sector Entity, established pursuant to Law no. 3818 of 15 April 1886. A no-profit organisation, that has chosen to operate in full observance of the mutual aid principle, setting itself to be the main player in Italy for spreading the culture and principles of mutual aid, at the same time promoting health and a correct lifestyle.
Promoting Health in all realms of life
For this noble and necessary activity in our country, MBA uses its very members, who, after specific training, become Mutual Aid Promoters for the public, allowing Mutua MBA to expand its own membership base, guaranteeing mutual exchange and the continuous increase in share capital.
In particular, in line with article 23 of Leg. Decree No. 170 of 18 October 2012, MBA provides the following activities for its own members/beneficiaries:
- Social-healthcare treatment and services in the event of accidents, illnesses and invalidity for work, and also in the presence of temporary or permanent inability;
- Subsidies in the event of healthcare expenses incurred by members for the diagnosis and treatment of illnesses and accidents;
- Family aid or funding to families of deceased members;
- Funding and aid for members who find themselves in serious financial problems after the sudden loss of personal and family income and in the absence of public aid.
MBA, which mainly focused on individual citizens in its early years, has expanded its own basin of members, increasingly attracting the appreciation of associations, institutions and companies, that have chosen it in order to guarantee advantageous, effective healthcare plans for their members and employees, identifying a single partner that can provide information aimed at increasing awareness for prevention, the first indicator of health in a country.
In a few years, MBA has seen an exponential increase in its members and has increased its presence in the complementary healthcare sector, thus becoming the largest Italian mutual aid company by number of beneficiaries.
MBA, with its capital of € 4,785,379.60, and its consolidation and organisation, autonomously manages its own activities and healthcare plans, abandoning the use of traditional insurance cover and autonomously providing services; this provides for a significant reduction in costs, with direct advantages for the services provided and the contributions paid by the members.
Over the years we have incorporated several Mutual Aid funds companies, such as Mutua Evo, Mutua 1886 and Mutua Sarda. In 2015, it was the turn of the FASV fund, Fondo di Assistenza Sanitaria Integrativa Volontario di Assolombarda, established in 1947 with the name at that time of “Cassa Mutua Malattia dell’Associazione Industriale Lombarda”, the following year Mutua Online was incorporated and in June 2017, Cassa Mutua Cardea also became a part of the Mutua MBA world.
MBA is a founder member of ANSI (Associazione Nazionale Sanità Integrativa e Welfare), which counts among its members the leading Mutual Aid companies and Healthcare Assistance funds, and which for years has been the promoter, also with institutions, of new welfare management models in the healthcare and social services sectors.

at your service
The focus on members and the respect of human dignity, the democratic participation in decisions, transparency and control, social responsibility and ethics in conduct, the awareness that comes from communication and information: these are all the pillars on which our daily work is based.
Article 32 of the Italian Constitution defines health as a “person’s fundamental right and the interest of society”. MBA's aim is to pursue the constitutional mandate, bring this right to the centre of every person's life.
MBA works in full respect of the mutual aid principle, offering every citizen the possibility of experiencing members’ activities, without any discrimination of age, gender or working activity.
Our mutual aid society pursue the aim of general interest, based on the constitutional principle of subsidiarity. It works for the advantage of its members and beneficiaries, to whom it does not guarantee a profit of assets or money, but the coverage of certain personal and economic needs in the areas of healthcare, social services and aid.
Mutua MBA cannot allocate profit to members: the mutual aid margin is carefully set aside as a reserve fund to address any increased costs in the interest of the members, thus contributing to consolidating the assets to be passed on to future generations.
Healthcare Office: Provides assistance to mutual aid members for all reimbursement paperwork and also advice regarding subsidies. It also coordinates the scientific committee in searching for the best aid conditions in terms of quality and efficiency.
Steering Committee: Comprising the board of directors and experts in additional healthcare. It meets on request to evaluate changes in regulations, but also ideas and proposals of interest to the world of mutual aid.
