Do you pay a healthcare contribution for yourself? Then this consists of:
- a fixed (nominal) contribution for the Zorgverzekeringswet (Zvw - Healthcare insurance Act)
- an income-dependent contribution for the Zvw
- an income-dependent contribution to the Wet langdurige zorg (Wlz - Long-term Care Act)
Do you pay a healthcare contribution for your family member to us? Then this (per family member) consists of:
- a fixed (nominal) contribution for the Zvw
Country of residence factor
We multiply the healthcare contribution by a country of residence factor
. In that way your healthcare contribution is proportionate to the size and cost of the healthcare package in your country of residence
The Ministry determines each year the nominal Zvw contribution, the rates of income-dependent contributions and the country of residence factor. You can check the yearly numbers and percentages at What is a country of residence factor?
How much do you pay?
Once you are registered you will receive a letter. It will tell you from what date you are treaty-entitled. It also states when we will be starting to deduct the healthcare contribution from your income. Because the healthcare contribution is (in part) income dependent we can not determine an exact amount up front. However you can use the calculation module to get a general idea. After the end of each year, you will receive an annual statement
