Care abroad involves both emergency care and planned care. You will find information on both types of care below.
Before traveling abroad, please note the following
Make sure you have the appropriate insurance documents with you
You need an insurance statement in order to apply for a visa to Russia and Cuba
When you have made costs and paid them yourself, please ask for an invoice in Dutch, English, French or German. We are unable to process invoices in other languages

Taking medication abroad
If you use medication and go abroad for more than three months, you can take up to six months’ worth of medication with you. In order to qualify, you need to stay abroad long-term and have a chronic need of this medication.
Some countries require an official statement for medication contained in the Opium law, such as sleep medication, sedatives, strong pain medication and ADHD-medication. If you want to check whether your medication falls within the confines of the Opium law, please contact your doctor or pharmacy.
