In response to the need for better healthcare information, the platform is launched as a comprehensive source of up-to-date information in English, for internationals that are moving to or living in the Netherlands.
The platform provides information on
- Dutch healthcare: How it works and how it may differ from what internationals are used to;
- Health insurance and cost: Are you obliged to take out Dutch health insurance, what are the costs, and how about excess (eigen risico) and co-pay obligations;
- Healthcare providers: What they do and how to find one.
- Themes and FAQs: Issues that internationals are often confused about, such as giving birth in the Netherlands, the use of antibiotics and preventive health checks.
