What is a healthcare contribution?

You pay a healthcare contribution for the right to medical care in your country of residence. Your country of residence settles your healthcare costs with the Netherlands. This has been agreed with a number of countries. Therefore, you do not pay a health premium to the local health insurance company for basic care in your country of residence. Instead, you pay a healthcare contribution to the Netherlands.

Please note
