Medication and dressings

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

You will receive a reimbursement for medication and dressings if:

  • the medicine may be sold as medication
  • the medication or dressing is prescribed by a General Practitioner or specialist
  • the medication was collected at a pharmacy or a dispensing physician

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 fall during a cycling trip. You break your wrist and sustain considerable wounds to your arm. You are treated in hospital. The doctor prescribes painkillers, a sling and ssings. The costs are €275. If you have no excess, you will receive reimbursement for the total costs.

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