Healthcare in your country of residence

You are entitled to medical care according to the laws in your country of residence. You can ask the health insurance fund where you register, which treatments and medicines will be reimbursed. You can claim costs incurred in your country of residence from the health insurance fund in your country of residence. You cannot claim those costs from us. 

How do I arrange healthcare in my country of residence?

Have you received a document S1/form 121 from us? This document allows you to register with the health insurance fund in your new country of residence. The leaflet accompanying document S1/form 121 shows which healthcare insurance fund (or institution) in your country you need to go to. If you have registered with the health insurance fund, we will be informed.

Please note: For some countries, we arrange your registration directly with the health insurance fund there. You don't have to do anything yourself. You will receive a letter from us.

Tip

It is useful to request information from the health insurance fund in your new country of residence first. They can tell you if you need any additional documents or information.

Co-insuring family members

Did you indicate on the 'Application for a document S1/form 121' that you want to co-insure family members? If so, you will receive a separate document S1/form 121 for each family member. You need to hand it over to the health insurance fund in your new country of residence. The health insurance fund assesses whether you can co-insure your family members. This depends on the rules in your new country of residence. The health insurance fund lets us know which family members you can co-insure.

Healthcare contribution

For yourself and for your co-insured family members you pay a healthcare contribution to us through your pension or benefit. Your country of residence will settle the costs of medical care for you and your co-insured family members with the Netherlands.
