Public healthcare insuranceYour public healthcare insurance provides cover for the most necessary care, such as hospital admissions, emergency care and general practitioner (GP) consultations. HollandZorg public healthcare insurance is a combination policy. This means that most of the care you will use is provided for, rather than reimbursed. You can read more about how combination policies work here.
At the bottom of this page, you will find a short overview of common healthcare treatments, showing what is covered under the public healthcare insurance. Please consult our terms and conditions for a complete overview of reimbursements.
Supplementary insurances cover excess and more
No Risk I
|€ 385,-||You do not have to pay any excess.|
No Risk II
|Emergency dental care in the Netherlands maximum of € 200,- per calender year||You will be reimbursed for care that cannot be postponed. This is care needed to relieve severe pain, or if you have trouble chewing. Check the list of treatments for urgent oral care (in Dutch).
|Reimbursement of statutory personal contribution for medicines of € 250,-||You do not pay a statutory personal contribution for medicines.|
You are entitled to transport and the organisation of such transport:
There has to be a medical necessity for the transport. Transport of family members and other travel companions does not fall under this
|Repatriation (transport home) within Europe in the event of death
||You are entitled to transport of your mortal remains from the place of death in the Netherlands or the country you are temporarily staying in to your country of origin. You are also entitled to reimbursement for the costs of organising such transport.
No Risk III
|Physiotherapy and remedial therapy: 6 sessions per calendar year.
||You will be entitled to full reimbursement of treatments by a care provider that has been contracted by us. A maximum reimbursement per treatment applies to treatments by a non-contracted care provider. You require a referral from a doctor.
|Dental care: all dental care will be reimbursed up to a maximum of € 250.00 per calendar year
||You will be reimbursed for dentist and dental hygienist check-ups and other treatments. The cost of dental care will be covered by No Risk III first. Once the maximum reimbursement amount has been reached, costs will be reimbursed from the cover that No Risk II provides for emergency dental care in the Netherlands. You will still be expected to pay costs that no longer fall under the cover provided by No Risk III and, subsequently, not under II either. A dentist can provide all types of care. This dentist does not have to be contracted by us.
Please consult the terms and conditions for a complete overview of reimbursements
Under Dutch public healthcare insurance, you are obliged to pay a personal contribution for some medical expenses. Like maternity care and hearing aids, for example. The government decides to which care the personal contribution applies and how high the contribution is. You can find out whether a personal contribution is needed by checking the individual reimbursement page for your specific type of treatment.
If you are covered under our No Risk II supplementary insurance, you will not have to pay any personal contribution for the use of medicine.
Contracted general practitioner or doctor consultations
HollandZorg has negotiated contracts with care providers throughout the country. We have agreed standards of care and its costs. If you visit a non-contracted physician or care provider, you may have to pay for (part of) the treatment yourself. Want to know which medical professionals we have contracted? Use our care finder.
