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.

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

  • standard cover: 5 sessions up to a maximum of €500
  • extended cover: 8 sessions up to a maximum of €800

The number of sessions and the reimbursement apply per year insured (or period insured if you are insured for less than a year).

We will reimburse the costs if a doctor has referred you and you are treated by an authorised psychiatrist, psychologist or psychotherapist.

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 have been attacked and experience nightmares and concentration problems as a result. You are referred by a doctor and have 4 sessions with a psychologist. The costs are €380. If you have an excess of €150, you will receive a reimbursement of €230.

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