Insurance Coverage: What medical costs does my health insurance cover?

(Last edited: Friday, 24 April 2020, 3:04 PM)

Examples of insurances students might need during their stay in the Netherlands besides medical insurance:  

  • Emergency costs and repatriation (e.g. in the event of unexpectedly having to return to your home country)
  • Private liability (e.g. a bike accident damaging a car in the process)
  • Home contents and personal property, including baggage (e.g. theft from your room, loss of suitcase during a trip)
  • Accidents (e.g. disability through an accident)
  • Legal aid (e.g. conflict with a landlord)  

If students are not or no longer eligible for Dutch Basic Healthcare Insurance and still a student, a complete insurance package is available via
