Many international students will receive a letter from the College van Zorgverzekeringen (CVZ) this year, about taking out Dutch healthcare insurance. This CVZ letter will be sent to all foreign students in the Netherlands who:
1.are registered at the local council; and
2.who do not complete a full degree in the Netherlands; and
3.who do not already have Dutch public healthcare insurance (known as basiszorgverzekering in Dutch).
Always take action
When you receive the letter from the CVZ you should always take action to prevent receiving an automatically-generated fine. If you have to take out Dutch public healthcare insurance you have to arrange this as soon as possible.
If you are exempt from the obligation to take out the insurance, or if you are not sure about your status, you should fill in an form that will clarify whether or not you have to take out the insurance. This form and more information you will find here.
Please go to the Nuffic website for FAQ about the CVZ letter.
If you are travelling abroad for study, workplacement or complete your studies, more information about insurances you will find here.
