Internship in the Netherlands and healthcare costs
Dutch citizens have compulsory insurance for healthcare costs, the Dutch national health insurance. You may be covered by the Dutch national health insurance during your internship here. That is the case if you receive an internship allowance and pay social security premiums in the Netherlands.
If you do not pay social security premiums in the Netherlands and are therefore not eligible for the Dutch national health insurance, then the OOM Studying in the Netherlands Insurance will ensure you are properly covered for healthcare costs. If you have to take out mandatory Dutch national health insurance, the package insurance may be appealing. It includes cover for travel home if a family member is seriously ill.
You may not want to think about it, but you could experience setbacks in the Netherlands during your internship, just as you might in your own country. What happens if your computer is stolen or you are held liable for damages incurred by a third party?
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.
For interns up to age 29
OOM Studying in the Netherlands Insurance is for young people up to age 29 who come to the Netherlands for their internship. If you don’t fall into this age category, go to OOM Provisional Residence in the Netherlands Insurance.
