What does the ONVZ Vrije Keuze basic health-care plan cover?
Depending on your situation, you may need to take out Dutch health insurance if you are coming to the Netherlands. If you do not know if you need to take out health insurance in the Netherlands, then you can contact the Sociale Verzekeringsbank (SVB). Please check with the SVB whether your circumstances require you to have Dutch health insurance.
The basic health-care plan covers a significant portion of unavoidable medical expenses, such as hospitalisation, medical specialist assistance, GP visits and medicines. The ONVZ Vrije Keuze basic health-care plan allows you to choose your own care provider. Read more about our freedom of choice.
