Specialist treatments

The OOM Schengen Visitor Insurance is a medical insurance if you are staying in the Netherlands temporarily. The insurance reimburses unexpected medical expenses.

You will receive a reimbursement for specialist treatment if:

  • the treatment is carried out by a specialist doctor
  • the doctor is entered in a special register for this speciality

You will also receive reimbursement for additional medical expenses, such as X-rays, blood transfusion, outpatients' department, anaesthesia and a second opinion if the specialist suggests drastic medical treatment.

If you have a specialist treatment for an existing ailment or complaint you already had on taking out insurance, we will not reimburse these costs. This also applies if you did not know you had the ailment or complaint at the time you took out the insurance.
