Healthcare for Internationals

Community Platform

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

  1. Dutch healthcare: How it works and how it may differ from what internationals are used to;
  2. 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;
  3. Healthcare providers: What they do and how to find one.
  4. 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.
