Forms for treaty-entitled persons

If you move to a treaty country and are receiving a pension or benefit from the Netherlands, you can fill out the form Application for a document S1/form 121 (7.12.2020, PDF, 758 kB). On the basis of your application we will assess whether you are entitled to Dutch-funded medical care. If you are entitled to such care, we will send you the S1/121. This form allows you to register with a health insurance fund or company in your country of residence. Only after registration can you use medical care in your country of residence.

Please note

Are you moving to Spain? You will need, among other things, a NIE number (evidence that you are an EU citizen, in Spanish only) to register with a Spanish health insurance company. Take into account long waiting times. Please inform the Spanish consulate (in Spanish and Dutch only) in advance of any more documents you need when emigrating and make appointments online.

If your family members no longer live or work in the Netherlands, they can no longer have Dutch health insurance. In some cases they can be co-insured under your policy in their country of residence. That is only possible, however, if they live in a treaty country.

Do your family members live in an EU/EEA country or Switzerland?

  • Apply to the CAK for an S1 for your family members.
  • You need to request a separate document for each of them.

The following form can be used for your family members: Application for a document S1 for a family member (7.12.2020, PDF, 547 kB).

You can use the form Notification of bank details of a treaty-entitled person (7.12.2020, PDF, 464 kB) to let us know your bank account number.
