Medical Insurance Healthcare

Before you arrive to the Netherlands, you need to make sure that you have made arrangements to be properly insured against the costs of medical treatment. Check if medical insurance in your home country covers medical costs in the Netherlands and bring an international declaration form or a European Health Insurance Card with you. If your current health insurance does not cover costs made in the Netherlands, you need to get a new or special insurance policy for the duration of your stay.

EUR recommends the following two Dutch providers of insurance packages for students, as the coverage meets all the legal requirements in the Netherlands:

These companies offer insurance packages for international students, covering medical expenses, extraordinary costs, legal aid, accidents, mental health, liability, and lost baggage and household goods coverage.

We strongly recommend that you apply for one of those insurances. The cost is approximately €40 per month. You will find more information about the conditions on the company websites.

You need to be insured on the day of arrival in the Netherlands till you leave the Netherlands.

More information about insurances can be found on the EUR website.
