Do I need to have Dutch health insurance?

Almost certainly. The first thing that will happen when you end up in A&E after coming off your bike and thinking you have broken your arm is that you will be asked for your insurer… so, unless you are here for less than four months and are still covered by your health insurer back home or if you are a student under the age of 30 and here temporarily (and not working) you’ll need to cough up.

 

Here is the official government line
