Preventative child health care

The OOM Living Abroad Insurance is a medical insurance for a longer or permanent stay abroad.

Whether you get reimbursement for preventative child health care depends on the cover you have chosen:

  • Regular cover: no reimbursement
  • Comfort and DeLuxe cover: the costs will be reimbursed

We will reimburse the costs of care as they are given by a child health centre in the Netherlands. This means that a doctor or nurse will follow the general development of the insured child.

With the OOM Living Abroad Insurance you can opt for no excess or an excess of €250, €500 or €1,000. If you have opted for an excess and you incur costs which are covered by the insurance, you then pay the first part of these costs yourself.

You visit a child health centre while abroad with your child for the relevant vaccinations. The costs are €165. If your child has Comfort cover and no excess, you will receive a reimbursement of the total costs if the vaccinations are included in the Vaccination Programme of the National Institute of Public Health and Environmental Protection (RIVM) or in the vaccination programme of the country you are staying in.

You can claim your medical expenses quickly and easily via My OOM.
