I’m getting a foreign au pair

If you are going to have a foreign au pair in your home, in most cases they need to take out Dutch national health insurance for medical expenses.

Dutch national health insurance is not always enough

OOM Verzekeringen does not offer Dutch national health insurance. Our insurance offers a solution for those who are not (yet) eligible for Dutch national health insurance.

OOM Studying in the Netherlands Insurance can be an addition to your au pair’s Dutch national health insurance. This health insurance includes SOS insurance, which covers travel costs to the country of origin due to illness, accident or, in the case of death, for mortal remains. You can also take out SOS insurance separately.
