Basic Health Insurance

Our Basic health insurances

The Basic health insurance reimburses the costs of care that is essential medically. For example, care when you are ill and must be admitted to hospital or care provided by your general practitioner.

A Basic health insurance is mandatory for everyone in the Netherlands. The government determines which reimbursements are included in the Basic health insurance. You can choose from 3 Basic insurances at Menzis.
