Medical Insurance Healthcare

You are by law obliged to be properly insured during your time in the Netherlands. Above all things, you should make sure that you are sufficiently insured for medical expenses (including pre-existing conditions). In addition, third-party liability insurance is absolutely essential, and if you will be living in student accommodation it is also a good idea to have fire and furnishings insurance. Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) strongly recommends the AON insurance for a complete coverage. This company has a long and outstanding history in the field of medical insurances for foreign students. However, you are free to choose your own insurance company. AON Insurance – ICS Complete+ Aon Student Insurance has developed a tailor made ICS Complete+ insurance for international students of the Erasmus University. Complete+ insures you when you study abroad. This extensive insurance package covers health and non-medical costs. They include home contents, baggage, accidents, liability and legal costs. With Complete+ you are insured worldwide. This insurance policy also meets the requirements for your immigration application. As it is important to avoid unforeseen medical expenses along the way, we recommend you to conclude this insurance plan. Unlike other insurance companies, AON covers the costs for existing medical treatments.

General practitioner

For medical assistance, the usual practice in the Netherlands is for a patient to have an initial consultation with a general practitioner (Dutch: huisarts), before making an appointment with a specialist in a hospital. Tip: Before making an appointment, check your insurance policy to inquire which treatments are fully or partial covered by your insurance to avoid unexpected costs afterwards.
