Contraception

The OOM Studying in the Netherlands Insurance is a medical insurance for foreign young people who come to the Netherlands as a student, intern or au pair.

You will receive reimbursement for contraception if a doctor prescribes it. Whether you get reimbursement depends on the cover you have chosen:

  • standard cover: a maximum of €125 per year insured (or period insured if you are insured for less than a year)
  • extended cover: all costs will be reimbursed

With the OOM Studying in the Netherlands Insurance you can opt for no excess or an excess of €150. If you incur costs which are covered by the insurance and you have opted for an excess of €150, you then pay for the first part of the costs yourself.

You go to a General Practitioner in the Netherlands for contraception. They prescribe the Pill. This costs €300 a year. If you have an excess of €150, you will receive a reimbursement of €150 if you have extended cover.

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