Dutch national healthcare scheme
Under the Health Insurance Act (Zorgverzekeringswet), all residents of the Netherlands have to take out basic national health insurance. The exact reimbursements included in this basic package are determined by the government each year. The basic national health insurance covers standard medical expenses such as general practitioners, hospitals and pharmaceutical expenses. Each health insurance company is free to set the premium for this package.
Supplementary insurance can be taken out for expenses that are not included in the national health insurance. Reimbursements and premiums vary per health insurance company.
Statutory and voluntary excess
The national health insurance has a statutory excess. The government determined that the excess for this year is € 385. This excess applies to anyone with health insurance aged 18 and up. You can also opt, besides the statutory excess, for an additional voluntary excess of € 0, € 100, € 200, € 300, € 400 or € 500. The level of your premium is proportionate to your voluntary excess. This allows you to set your own premium amount.
