Voluntary work and the Dutch national health insurance
If you are going abroad to do voluntary work, your personal situation will determine whether or not you will have to retain your Dutch national health insurance.
If you are not covered by the Dutch national health insurance when you are volunteering abroad, the OOM Temporary Residence Abroad Insurance will give you proper healthcare costs cover. The insurance can also be a supplement if you are going 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.
SOS insurance is included. It includes covering the costs of repatriation to the Netherlands or evacuation if treatment is not possible locally and cannot be postponed. This is particularly important if you are doing voluntary work in countries where medical care is poor. SOS insurance can also be taken out separately.
As well as the medical travel insurance, you may also take out insurance for travel, cancellation, household contents, liability, legal assistance and accidents.
For voluntary work abroad for up to 2 years
The OOM Temporary Residence Abroad Insurance has a flexible duration from 1 day to a maximum of 2 years (1 year for the continual travel insurance). You can terminate the insurance at any time.
If you already know you will be staying abroad for more than 2 years, OOM Living Abroad Insurance would suit you better.
