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 phone call immediately. That is how we work.
When you have a Dutch healthcare insurance, you may be eligible for a healthcare compensation. The healthcare allowance 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 the healthcare allowance.
If you are not insured, you will receive a letter from the Healthcare Institute (Zorginstituut Nederland), reminding you to apply for mandatory health insurance. If you do not enroll with a health insurance within three months, you will have to pay a penalty.
