On this website we will provide you with general information on what you need to do in order to be reimbursed for medical treatment in another EU country. You can also find a list of all other National Contact Points here. This is convenient if you want to know more about healthcare in the country of your choice. This website is therefore only useful to you if you intend to be treated by a doctor or institution in another EU country. We cannot judge whether you are eligible for that medical treatment.
Do you come from another EU country and want to come to the Netherlands for medical treatment? Then you will find here general information about what you need to do to get a reimbursement. You can also read, among other things, how healthcare is organised in the Netherlands, what your rights as a patient are and what you should do if you are not satisfied with the healthcare. We cannot provide information about the possibilities of health insurance in the Netherlands. Nor can we assess whether you are entitled to medical treatment in the Netherlands. Do you have a general question about cross-border healthcare within the European Union or is the information on this website not clear to you? Please send us an e-mail via the contact form.
