Total number of insurance companies in the Benelux region 2004-2017, by country

This statistic shows the total number of insurance companies on the total market in the Benelux countries (Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands) from 2004 to 2017. Of the Benelux countries, the Netherlands had the most insurance companies on their total market. Most insurance companies in the Netherlands are active in health insurance. 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. As not all care is covered by this standard insurance, one can opt to take out additional health insurance cover for, for example, physiotherapy and dental care. In 2017, Dutch health insurance concern Zilveren Kruis had a market share of approximately 31 percent.
