There’s a lot to organise if you’re planning to go abroad as a student, intern or au pair. With the OOM Studying Abroad Insurance you can be sure you’re properly insured and so can set off on your foreign adventures without a worry.
These are the most important features of the OOM Studying Abroad Insurance:
- Insurance for those planning to go abroad as a student, intern or au pair
- Put together the insurance package you want: healthcare, dental costs and/or a package insurance
- Flexible duration from one day to five years
- Insurance cover continues if you come back to the Netherlands on a visit
The OOM Studying Abroad Insurance is for young people planning to go abroad as a student, intern or au pair. The health insurance is useful if you are:
- not covered by Dutch national health insurance during your time abroad
- visiting a country where medical care is more expensive than in the Netherlands and therefore want to supplement the Dutch national health insurance
If you have compulsory Dutch national health insurance, you may still find the package insurance a suitable option. This cover includes reimbursement of travel costs if you need to return home because a family member is seriously ill.
OOM Studying Abroad Insurance is for young people aged between 15 and 29 years. If you fall outside this age category, see OOM Temporary Residence Abroad Insurance.
With the OOM Studying Abroad Insurance you can choose what you insure. The insurance always includes SOS insurance. This includes covering the costs of repatriation (return to the Netherlands) or evacuation if treatment is not possible locally and cannot be postponed.
You can take out the following types of insurance:
You can take out insurance from one day to a maximum of five years, as long as you are 29 years of age, or younger on the commencement date.
If your stay abroad is longer than you first planned, you may extend the insurance once, by a maximum of two months, providing you will not be insured for more than 5 years. Existing complaints and ailments are then excluded.
If you don’t know how long you’ll need insurance for, it’s better to opt for a longer period, rather than one that may be too short. You can terminate the insurance at any time in My OOM or by sending us an email. We will refund any premium you may have already paid for cover after the termination date.
