Contraception

The OOM Temporary Residence Abroad Insurance is a medical insurance for if you stay abroad for a longer period of time (up to a maximum of 2 years).

Whether you get reimbursement for contraception depends on the cover you have chosen:

  • Light and Regular cover: no reimbursement
  • Comfort cover: you will receive reimbursement for contraception if a doctor prescribes it

With the OOM Temporary Residence 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 go to a General Practitioner in the country where you are staying for contraception. They prescribe the Pill. This costs €300 per year. If you have Comfort cover and no excess, you will receive a reimbursement of the total costs.  

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