Flexpolis: what's covered under your health insurance policy
Basic health insurance
Your basic health insurance provides cover for what the Dutch government considers basic care, such as hospital admissions, emergency care and general practitioner (GP) consultations. HollandZorg basic health 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.
Below, you will find a short overview of common healthcare treatments, showing what is covered under the basic health insurance. Please consult our terms and conditions for a complete overview of reimbursements.

With a Dutch basic health insurance, you are obliged to pay a personal contribution for some medical expenses. For 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 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 medication.
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.
