This depends on the treaty country they live in.
Do your family members live in a country of the EU, of the EEA, in the United Kingdom or in Switzerland?
- Apply for a document S1 from the CAK for your family members.
- You must apply for a separate document for each family member.
For your family members you can use this form: Application for a document S1, Medical care for a family member (18-10-2021, pdf, 514 kB).
Do your family members live in another treaty country?
- Apply for a form 109 from your Dutch healthcare insurance company.
Your family members need to submit the document or form to a local health insurance fund in their country of residence.
The local health insurance fund decides which family members are co-insured and notifies the CAK. If your family members are registered as co-insured, they will receive a health insurance card from the local health insurance fund or a certificate of registration. Then they are entitled to the same healthcare as the other residents of their country of residence.
When are my family members registered?
- The local health insurance fund will notify us about the co-insured family members.
- Once we have received this notification from the local health insurance fund, your family members will be registered with us as being co-insured with you.
- You will receive a letter from us about this.
Does the local health insurance fund determine that your family members cannot be co-insured? Then arrange a health insurance for your family members in their country of residence.
