Insurance for unexpected medical expenses
If you are travelling in the Netherlands you will want to enjoy everything the Netherlands has to offer: its historical towns, impressive museums, unique polder landscapes and its varied night life.
You may not want to think about it, but you could get ill or have an accident during your journey in the Netherlands. The OOM Schengen Visitor Insurance reimburses unexpected medical expenses for treating acute appendicitis or a broken leg, for example.
No medical acceptance; excluding existing symptoms
Medical acceptance does not apply to this insurance; you do not have to answer questions about your health beforehand.
If you incur medical expenses for an ailment or complaint that you had before taking out OOM Schengen Visitor Insurance, we will not reimburse these expenses. This also applies if you did not know you had the ailment or complaint at the time you took out the insurance.
If you want a more extended cover, maybe the OOM Provisional Residence in the Netherlands Insurance would suit you better.
Your insurance and the Schengen visa
If you are travelling, are on holiday or are travelling through the Netherlands and you apply for a Schengen visa, you must prove that you are insured for healthcare costs in the Netherlands. The OOM Schengen Visitor Insurance meets this demand.
If you already have health insurance in your home country which also applies to the Netherlands, bear in mind that medical care in the Netherlands may be more expensive than in your country of origin. You may be confronted with high costs if you are insufficiently insured. The OOM Schengen Visitor Insurance could then be a supplement to your health insurance in such an instance.
