Are you coming to work or live here? Then you are obligated to have a Dutch health insurance. But how does it work? What are the first steps you need to take?
When you registered in Holland you have four months to apply for a health insurance. If you apply within those four months the start date of the insurance will always be the day you registered. The reason for this is that you are obligated to have an insurance and you cannot be uninsured. But is also means that you have to pay your premium since the day you registered.
For example: you register yourself in Holland on the 1e of May . Three months after you register, on the 1e of August, you apply for a health insurance. The start date of your insurance will be the 1e of May and you will also have to pay premium for May, June and July.
