Basic Health Insurance or Basiszorgverzekering

The Dutch Public Health Insurance is for residents in the Netherlands, and everyone working and paying for social security in the Netherlands. If you are obliged to have this insurance, we can help you. This insurance company (ONVZ) is one of the few insurers in The Netherlands that offers information regarding the Basiszorgverzekering in English. That can be very helpful. Should you wish to read more about the Dutch Health System and certain aspects of the Basisverzekering, we want to refer to this information.
