Take out health insurance
What is supplementary insurance?
What is care allowance?
You may be entitled to care allowance if your income is minimal. This is money you get from the tax authorities. It allows you to pay part of your premium; the rest you will need to cover yourself.
You can find more information on the website of the tax authorities.
What happens if you don’t take out a health insurance?
If you do not take out health insurance, you will receive notifications from the Netherlands Healthcare Institute. You will then have three months to take out health insurance. If you do not, you will be fined more than €400. The amount of the fine is determined per year. If you still do not arrange health insurance for yourself, you will receive another fine. After this, the Netherlands Healthcare Institute registers you with a health insurance company. This is not convenient, as you will pay a much higher premium.

Perhaps you have experienced something bad, in your private life or at home. It could have been a recent event or even some time ago. Has a client crossed your boundaries?
It can be difficult to deal with less or little money. This can potentially lead to debt or other money problems.
