The government ensures that insurance providers give the same basic level of service in their packages. The amount of coverage is subject to change and needs to be consulted every so often to see what is and isn’t covered. The contents of the basic care package (basispakketcan be found on the government website.

Visiting a family doctor, for example, is included in the basic health care in the Netherlands. If you are not insured in the Netherlands you will be asked to pay up front and then claim the money back from your own health insurance.
