Claiming an international invoice

Been abroad on holiday or visit and needed medical care? That won't have been much fun. Besides, you have probably had to pay the costs in advance yourself. What a hassle! Let's try and make the reimbursement of those costs as smooth as possible. On this page, you'll find the best way to submit your claim.

Claiming an invoice

In order for you to be able to claim an invoice, it has to be drawn up in English, French, German, Spanish, Polish or Turkish. If that is not the case, we need a translation from a certified translator. The invoice needs to state the following details:

  • Name, address, domicile and profession of the healthcare provider
  • The date of the invoice and the date on which the care was provided
  • A description of the care provided
  • Name and date of birth of the insured person

When you submit the invoice, we also need a claim form. You can choose from the following forms:

International claim form

Note: when submitting a claim for an international invoice, the process is different compared to a Dutch invoice. When submitting a claim for an international invoice, you also have to complete the back of the claim form. Send this form, along with the original invoice and a translation (if appropriate) to:

Attn. dept. Verstrekkingen/groep verzekerden
Antwoordnummer 30
7400 VB Deventer

No stamp required.

Healthcare in your country of origin

If you need healthcare in the country you live in (only 27 EU-countries, Liechtenstein, Norway, Iceland, United Kingdom and Switzerland) when you are not in the Netherlands, you can opt to give the healthcare provider in your country of residence an E106/S1 Form. In that case they will not give you an invoice, so you do not have to claim anything once you get back home. This is not compulsory, as you can also use the EHIC.
