Individuals with or without voluntary excess in the Netherlands 2012-2018

Share of individuals in the Netherlands with or without voluntary excess ("vrijwillig eigen risico") under the Dutch Health Insurance Act in the Netherlands from 2012 to 2018

Individuals with or without voluntary excess in the Netherlands 2012-2018 This statistic shows the share of individuals in the Netherlands with or without voluntary excess (in Dutch: vrijwillig eigen risico) under the Dutch Health Insurance Act in the Netherlands from 2012 to 2018. In 2018, approximately 9.3 percent of Dutch individuals with a standard compulsory health insurance had a voluntary excess worth 500 euros.
In the Netherlands, every resident or employee is obliged to take a basic health insurance to cover medical costs from, for example, visits to a general practitioner or the hospital. The Dutch government decides on the cover provided by this package and health insurance companies are obliged to accept everyone who meets the requirements, regardless of age or state of health. It is compulsory, however, from the age of 18 to pay a total mandatory excess (in Dutch: verplicht eigen risico) before the basic insurance reimburses medical costs. This principle was introduced in the Dutch Health Insurance Act (Zvw) in 2008. This mandatory excess can be increased with an additional voluntary excess (in Dutch: vrijwillig eigen risico), in exchange for a lower premium.
