You did not respond to our letters to get a health insurance
When you do not take out a health insurance within a year, we do it on your behalf. You receive a letter from us that we took out a health insurance. You will also receive your health insurance policy from your health insurer.
You pay this insurance to us for 12 months.
Do you have an income in the Netherlands? Then we will deduct the health insurance premium from your salary. If not, the Centraal Justitieel Incasso Bureau (CJIB) will send you an invoice letter every month. This way your pay for your insurance premium.
Can I choose for a different Dutch health insurance?
No, you have this health insurance for at least 12 months. After the 12 months you can apply for a different health insurance, at the end of the year, before the 1st of january.
Request a Wlz assessment if you think you do not need Dutch health insurance
Do you suspect that a Dutch health insurance is not required for you? Then you need proof that you do not need Dutch health insurance. The Social Insurance Bank (SVB) can prove this for you, with a Wlz assessment.
How do I apply for the Wlz assessment?
The Social Insurance Bank (SVB) can do a Wlz assessment for you. Apply for the Wlz assessment on the SVB website.
You can fill in the form online, if you have DigiD. Otherwise you need to print the form, fill it in, and send it by post. The address of the SVB is on the form.
What happens next?
Within 8 weeks the SVB will send you a letter with the result. If you are insured under the Wlz, you need to get a Dutch health insurance. You will get 6 weeks after the result, to get a Dutch insurance. If you are not Wlz insured, you do not need a Dutch health insurance. We can cancel the insurance when we get the result of the SVB.
Send the result to us
When you receive the result, please send it to us. You can use the contact form on our website
. Choose 'Regeling Onverzekerden', at the first question of the form.
Or send a copy of the result by post, to:
2509 VC Den Haag
Be aware when you used the insurance for medical costs. If we cancel the insurance after the assessment, you need to pay back medical costs that were compensated by the insurance.
