Insurance Reimbursements: How can I reimburse medical expenses from my insurance?
International students have to pay their medical bills before they can approach the insurance for coverage or reimbursements. This means that for all medical appointments, students have to pay for it first, before reimbursing it with AON.
Paid bills can be reimbursed on the website: https://www.aonstudentinsurance.com/students/en/claims/.

Insurance: Will I be fined for not having a health insurance while staying in the Netherlands?
Yes, non-compliance with this Dutch law means students may be fined by the Centraal Administratiekantoor (CAK). Depending on the period of being uninsured, fines can run into several hundreds of euro.
If students receive a letter from CAK which states that they need Dutch health insurance because of their income, they must act on it, even if the statement is incorrect. If students need help with these issues, email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org can assist in this matter.

Insurance: WIll I still need insurance after my graduation?
If a student has graduated recently or will graduate soon and will continue to stay in the Netherlands as a 'zoekjaar' (search year) student, a new insurance policy can be applied via the insurance website.
Please note that:
Please note that purchasing this insurance is only possible if students have a "search-year permit". Aon may ask for proof of the search year permit or a pending application for one.
The search-year permit is a permit for a maximum period of one year, to enable students to look for a job in the Netherlands after completion of studies. If students find a paid job or internship in the Netherlands, they will need to take out a public Dutch Basic Healthcare Insurance.

Internship and Part-Time Jobs: Is there any difference between internships and part-time jobs?
An internship is a compulsory module and is an essential part of your study programme, while a part-time job is an additional extracurricular option. You will be assessed at the end of your internship and the grade will be included in your results report. Take note that you will not be allowed to present your final thesis if you have not passed your internship or WP module.
