Who we are

History: nothing but health insurance policies

ONVZ has always and only ever been a health-care insurer. That is our strong point. The company was set up in 1933 as the Onderlinge Nationale Verzekering tegen Ziekenhuiskosten. We celebrated our 75th birthday in 2008.

The organisation grew considerably in 2006, when we took over the health insurance portfolios of Allianz Nederland, Nationale-Nederlanden, Aegon and VvAA. We still provide Aegon and VvAA insurance policies under the previous insurer’s name.

Over time, ONVZ has built up a good reputation as an innovative and capable health-care insurer, which is independent and has a sound position on the market. Our main goal is to look after people’s health. This notion is shared by all of the more than 400 ONVZ employees. It’s with good reason that we have often been voted the Netherlands' “best health-care insurer”.

Organisational structure: customer-oriented

All our thoughts and actions have a customer-oriented foundation. We want to provide our customers with optimal support with their health-care and familiarise them with the available options.

This is also reflected in the structure of our organisation. Our management team consists of six people: the two members of the Executive Board, three division managers and the financial director.

ONVZ is divided into three divisions that focus on different customer groups: Policyholders, Health-Care (focus on health-care providers and purchasers) and Commerce (focus on insurance advisers). Our size allows us to deliver both tailored-made as well as large-scale performances. We are practical and fast, but also analytical and innovative.
