Advancing your goals
The Netherlands has a social health insurance system that requires that all citizens obtain health insurance. Adults are responsible for both the premium and the percentage of the premium based on their income. The Netherlands’ healthcare system is one of the greatest globally, earning it the prestigious title of EHCI (European Health Care Index).
Still, technological and demographic advancements have increased the demand on healthcare expenditures, forcing insurers and providers to rethink how money is spent. Payers are increasingly interested in evidence of a drug’s increased value, as well as pricing and payment systems that minimize risk to their healthcare system.

The Dutch Reimbursement landscape
Health insurers provide coverage for all people through a framework that includes essential medical expenses (Health Insurance Act) as well as long-term nursing and care (Long-term care act). Additionally, voluntary health insurance is available for those who seek additional benefits. Prior to insurance coverage, there are three significant governmental agencies.
The Medicines Evaluation Board is responsible for market authorization and evaluates the efficacy, safety and quality of new therapies.
The Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sports (VWS) is responsible for including the drugs and services in the primary healthcare package. It is also involved in the drug price negotiation with the pharmaceutical companies.
The National Healthcare Institute (ZIN) advises the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sports regarding benefit package, quality improvement, fund management, and distribution to health insurers.
