When you are living or working in the Netherlands, basic health insurance is mandatory. Within 4 months of your arrival in the Netherlands, you will have to enroll with a health insurer.
The Dutch health insurance consists of a mandatory health insurance and an optional supplementary insurance.
With UnitedConsumers, you will receive up to 10% discount on the mandatory health Insurance from VGZ. If you have any questions about our health insurance, please contact us at email@example.com or call 040 – 235 05 60. One of our advisors will answer your call immediately. That's what we do.
When you have a Dutch healthcare insurance, you may be eligible for a healthcare benefit. The healthcare benefit is a contribution by the government and depends on your income. Visit the website of the Dutch Tax Administration (Belastingdienst) to calculate whether you qualify for receiving a healthcare benefit.
If you are not insured, you will receive a letter from the Central Administration Office (CAK: Centraal Administratie Kantoor), reminding you to apply for mandatory health insurance. If you do not enroll for a health insurance within three months of your arrival, you will be ordered to pay a fine.
