Private Student Health
LoonZorg offers 2 student insurance packages for students that are enrolled at a Dutch educational institution. These policies, of Citizens Insurance, are available for students that do not have a working contract in The Netherlands. The policies offer a coverage for care and/or treatments provided by the general practitioner (GP)/family doctor or public hospital. On top of this coverage the student policies offer a coverage for emergency dental care, physiotherapy and psychological care.
Please note that for non-emergency care a referral from a GP is required. For medicines the requirement of a prescription applies. Also important to know is that the student policies do not cover pre-existing conditions.
Student policies are private policies and that is why they are restitution policies. This means that the care providers will not be able to find you in the Dutch care system. Invoices will have to be paid for upfront by the insured and can be forwarded to LoonZorg by email for reimbursement.
As soon as a student will start (part-time) working in the Netherlands (there is an exception for internship programs), the employer will pay contributions towards Social Security. From that moment on, the student is obliged to take out Dutch public health insurance. In this case LoonZorg will be happy to help you switch your policy package to the best priced public health insurance policy.
In order for us to register you under a student policy we will ask you to forward a proof of being a student in The Netherlands together with a copy of your ID. As well we will ask you to fill out a ‘medical application form’ that will be forwarded to a medical advisor.
Please note that during the 1st month of the student health insurance packages, only (non-pre-existing) emergency care is covered.
