If you bought health insurance in the Netherlands, you can get back part of the amount you paid. According to the health insurance law (Zorgverzekeringswet), persons living in the Netherlands that work and pay income tax in the Netherlands, must be insured with compulsory insurance. With an EU health insurance card issued by your country (available in the EU countries and Switzerland), you can reside in the Netherlands, but you cannot work.
Size of the compensation: the size of the compensation differs every year. It depends from your income that year: up to 107 EUR per month if your income for the year did not exceed 31 000 EUR.
- A copy of your passport or ID card;
- Jaaropgave forms or final salary statements from your every job;
- BSN/SoFi number (If you do not have any documents where a BSN/SoFi number is provided, but you know your number, it is enough simply to enter it into our document submission form);
- A copy of your insurance policy or insurance card.
Duration of the procedure: on average, the compensation is received within 3-4 months, but the tax office may state their final decision within a year from the document reception date.
