In the Netherlands, everyone is obliged to have a basic health insurance. All the basic needs for health care are covered in this insurance. For example, the general practitioner (GP), hospital stay and primary mental care fall under the basic insurance. The average costs for a basic health insurance in the Netherlands are around € 100,- per month. Every insurer offers a basic healthcare package, but they do differ in the premium you will have to pay. This is why ZorgKiezer.nl compares all of the insurances and tries to prevent you from overpaying.
