Zorg en Zekerheid
Everyone is entitled to care and security, as obvious as this may sound. Unfortunately, that’s not always a given in healthcare. We are doing our utmost to change that. Our name says it all: Zorg en Zekerheid, Dutch for ‘Care and Security’. As a healthcare insurance provider, our goal is to provide everyone with access to the best care possible. Both people who require extensive care and those who need just a bit. Everyone is entitled to Zorg en Zekerheid.
Working together towards good care and better health
We believe that cooperation is the only way to achieve good care and better health. So we collaborate with regional organisations, such as municipalities, sports clubs and care professionals, in many initiatives, proving we don’t just make promises – together, we make it happen. Care and health is more than simply obtaining the best treatment. A healthy diet, community ties, plenty of exercise and relaxation all contribute to better health for everyone. This is our goal, each and every day. Thanks to our strong regional connections we also work closely with health professionals on cost management and quality improvement.
In the Netherlands, everybody is entitled to medical care by law
Everyone living in the Netherlands, with an income in or from the Netherlands, is legally obliged to have at least basic health insurance, while Zorg en Zekerheid is legally obliged to accept every applicant as a customer. Basic health insurance covers costs for the most common medical care determined by the Dutch government, such as general practitioner and hospital care. Everyone aged 18 and older pays a monthly premium for their health insurance. Children under the age of 18 are included in all insurance policies for free.
