Working abroad and healthcare costs

You may be wondering: is the Dutch national health insurance not sufficient if you’re working abroad? Unfortunately, not always. The problem is, if you go to work abroad, you will probably pay social premiums there. In some cases, you will then not be eligible for Dutch national health insurance. In this case insurance like ours offers the solution.

If you are covered by Dutch national health insurance, OOM insurance can be a supplement for if you visit a country where medical care is expensive.
Note: With basic Dutch national insurance, you will never receive a higher reimbursement than you would receive in the Netherlands.

If you want to know what is applicable in your situation, please check with your health insurer.

OOM Temporary Residence Abroad Insurance has a flexible duration from 1 day to a maximum of 2 years. You can terminate the insurance at any time.
