Question referred

Do Articles 101 and 102 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union — signed at Lisbon on 13 December 2007 and which entered into force in France on 1 December 2009 — preclude national legislation such as that arising from Article L 112-1 of the French Code de la Mutualité (the Code governing mutual companies), in so far as the interpretation of that legislation would prohibit mutual companies providing supplementary health insurance from varying their benefits according to the conditions for issuing certificates and the services provided, whereas such a restriction is not imposed on other companies also providing supplementary health insurance whether governed by the Code des Assurances (the Insurance Code) or the Code de la Sécurité Sociale (the Social Security Code)?
