Studying abroad and healthcare costs
If you are a Dutch national and you go abroad to study, your personal situation will determine whether or not you will have to retain your Dutch national health insurance. You can find more information on the Zorginstituut Nederland website.
If you are not covered by the Dutch national health insurance during your course, master’s degree or language course, the OOM Studying Abroad Insurance will ensure you are properly covered for healthcare costs. The insurance can also be a supplement if you go to a country where medical care is expensive; you will never receive higher reimbursement than what you would get from the Dutch national health insurance.
You may experience setbacks abroad during your course, master’s degree or language course, just as you might in the Netherlands. What happens if you liable for damages incurred by a third party, your computer is stolen or if you need to go home due to illness or the death of a close family member?
The supplementary package insurance of the OOM Studying Abroad 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 Abroad Insurance includes SOS insurance as standard. It includes covering the costs of repatriation to the Netherlands or evacuation if treatment is not possible locally and cannot be postponed.

The OOM Studying Abroad Insurance is for young people up to age 29 wanting to go abroad to study, do a master’s degree or a language course. If you don’t fall into this age category, go to OOM Temporary Residence Abroad Insurance.
