Billing and insurance for pharmacy

If you have Dutch health insurance

We will send the bills for prescription medication directly to your Insurance company*

* Exceptions apply to over-the-counter products and some other specially marked medication

Eigen risico

Please be aware that Dutch insurance companies impose a mandatory eigen risico or ‘own risk’.   This excess amount is regulated by the Dutch Government and it applies every year to all persons with Dutch Insurance.  Your eigen risico is usually deducted from any reimbursements you may receive from your insurance company.  Items such as prescription medication and laboratory investigations also form part of the eigen risico.  During 2018, the minimum amount is 385 Euros.  


If you have foreign or international insurance

Please pay for all of your medication and other pharmacy products directly at time of purchase.  Once paid, you can then send the bill to your Insurance company for reimbursement
