I have Dutch healthcare insurance
Do you pay Dutch healthcare insurance premiums or are you registered with the Central Administration Office (CAK)? If so, you may be entitled to the healthcare benefit. This is a contribution towards the costs of your Dutch healthcare insurance.
Conditions for the healthcare benefit
These are the conditions for you and your possible benefit partner:
- You are 18 years of age or older and you have compulsory Dutch healthcare insurance. Healthcare insurance is compulsory if you work in the Netherlands or do a paid internship here. You are also eligible for healthcare benefit if you are registered with the CAK. If your partner has no Dutch healthcare insurance, only you will be entitled to the healthcare benefit. Students are not eligible for the benefit if they only have a non-compulsory student insurance.
- Your (combined) income and capital are not too high.
- You have the nationality of an EU country, Liechtenstein, Norway, Iceland or Switzerland. Are you from another country? If so, you need a valid residence permit or work permit.
Applying for benefits yourself
You can apply for the healthcare benefit yourself. Information about how to do this can be found under I want to apply for a benefit.
Submit changes on time
Please notify us of any changes in your situation that may impact our calculation of your benefits. This may be the case if your income changes, if your rent goes up (or down), and so on. In these cases, you have to notify us. Information about how to do this can be found under I want to submit a change.
