Do I need to take out health insurance?


Do I need to take out health insurance?

Everyone living and/or working in the Netherlands has to take out basic health insurance. If you do not, you will receive a penalty. Basic health insurance will cover the standard costs of your general practitioner’s, the hospital, and the pharmacy. Whether you also take out additional health insurance is up to you. Additional health insurance will cover costs that are not covered by basic insurance.
