Generally speaking, foreign au pairs must take out Dutch national health Insurance to insure healthcare costs. If this does not apply to your au pair, you can insure them properly for healthcare costs with the the OOM Studying in the Netherlands Insurance.
You can even take out the OOM Studying in the Netherlands Insurance at the time of departure, insuring your au pair from the moment they begin their journey to the Netherlands.
Just as in their own country, your foreign au pair may encounter set-backs here. For example, if they lose their luggage or is liable for damages incurred by a third party. And what if a close family member is seriously ill or dies and they want to return home as soon as possible? It can quickly get very expensive.
The supplementary package insurance of the OOM Studying in the Netherlands Insurance is for those kinds of situations and covers household contents, liability, travel, legal assistance and accidents. The package insurance can be taken out separately or to supplement the health insurance.
The OOM Studying in the Netherlands Insurance always includes SOS Insurance.
