Mandatory Health Insurance
Every Dutch resident has a compulsory health insurance. In 2021, everyone aged over 18 will also have a deductible of at least 385 euros (in accordance with 2018 to 2020). The visit to the doctor is not covered by the deductible, this means it will be covered by the insurance. However costs for examination or care outside the practice are included. This includes the prescription of medicines, laboratory procedures, X-ray tests, referral to a specialist, physiotherapist or psychologist, et cetera.
