Effective July 1, 2004 the following health care rules apply to the EU and EEA countries. With an international health insurance pass, visitors to Holland are entitled to health care should this be needed during their stay in our country. The care provided, however, is related to the length of stay in Holland. The concept ‘should this be needed’ is, of course, quite vague. It means that all services covered by medical insurance will be reimbursed.
Treatment for which someone expressly travels to Holland is excepted. An E112 (Treatment Abroad Scheme) form is required for such treatment.
EU AND EEA COUNTRIES Holland has reciprocal agreements with Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, the United Kingdom, Sweden and Switzerland.
OTHER AGREEMENT COUNTRIES Other countries with which Holland has a reciprocal agreement are Australia, Cape Verde Islands, Croatia, Morocco, Tunisia, Turkey, the Federal Republic Yugoslavia (Kosovo, Montenegro, Serbia, Vojvodina), Bosnia-Herzegovina and Macedonia. Please note that a restriction applies to these countries: health care will only be provided in case the necessary treatment cannot be delayed until the patient returns to his/her own country! These countries do not have E112 forms. Tourists traveling to Holland from the countries listed must have international insurance that enables the payment for the urgent treatment to be settled directly between the organization providing the treatment and Agis Zorgverzekeringen Afdeling Buitenland (Agis Health Insurance International Section).
VISITORS FROM COUNTRIES WITH WHICH HOLLAND DOES NOT HAVE AN AGREEMENT Tourists from countries with which Holland does not have a reciprocal agreement are advised to take out travel insurance including coverage of medical treatment. The actual coverage and financial settlement depends on the conditions of the particular insurance taken out. Agis does not concern itself with health care for tourists from countries with which Holland does not have a reciprocal agreement.
