Do I have sickness insurance coverage outside the Netherlands?

Whether you have sickness insurance coverage depends on which country you live and work in.


Sickness insurance guarantees you an income if you cannot work due to illness. This could be your salary, which your employer continues to pay, or sickness benefit. Sickness insurance does not cover the cost of medical care. For insurance that does cover the cost of medical care, see health insurance outside the Netherlands.
