Everyone living or working in the Netherlands has to take out health care insurance. The University of Twente has taken out a group health care insurance for all its staff members.
Under specific circumstances, such as in case of a paid appointment, employees are obliged to take out Dutch basic health care insurance. In such cases, just like any Dutch resident, the employee may choose the health care insurer he wishes to do business with.
The University of Twente has taken out a group health care insurance policy with health care insurer Menzis for its staff and their family members. You can find more information regarding the UT's collective health care insurance here: UT Collective Health Care Insurance.
