What I am about

Affordable and better care

When it comes to health care, the Netherlands is a world leader – and we want to keep it that way. To do this, we need a well-run system in which providers and insurers keep each other on their toes so that the best-quality care can be delivered at an affordable price and there is enough scope for professionals with bright ideas on how to make it even better. This is all in the interests of patients and insurance payers.
