Are you a healthcare organisation and do you provide essential medical care to uninsured patients? Or are you uncertain about whether a patient is insured. Then you can apply for a subsidy for emergency and non-emergency healthcare.
When do you qualify?
- You provide essential medical care (covered by basic health insurance) to an uninsured person. This subsidy does not apply if you provide healthcare to uninsured aliens without right of residence or a residence permit (in Dutch).
- The patient is unable to pay for the healthcare him or herself.
- You reported the case within 7 days to the Contact point for healthcare for uninsured patients (Meldpunt onverzekerden zorg), unless you have a valid reason for reporting late (applies from 1 March 2022). You will have to state this on the application form (in Dutch) and send proof why you report late.
- You have a General Economic Interest Service (DAEB) contract with the CAK.
How to apply?
You can apply for the essential medical care subsidy (in Dutch) for uninsured patients to the Central Administration Office (CAK).
