I am a British national living in the Netherlands. Do I have access to Dutch healthcare after Brexit?
If you are a British national who came to live or work in the Netherlands before 1 January 2021, and you had access to Dutch healthcare prior to that date, you continue to have access to Dutch healthcare in 2021 and beyond. New rules apply if you arrive in the Netherlands in 2021 or after.
If you are already living or working in the Netherlands on or before 31 December 2020
As a British national living in the Netherlands, you still have access to Dutch healthcare and the same conditions apply.
If you have been living in the Netherlands since 2021
You must meet the Dutch requirements for coming to live in the Netherlands. You need to apply for residence on the website of the Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND). If you come to live in the Netherlands, you must take out health insurance. The Employee Insurance Agency (UWV) can provide you with information on your right to work in the Netherlands and the procedure for obtaining an employment permit.
As assessment of whether you are covered by the Dutch social security system can only be made once your right to legally live and/or work in the Netherlands has been established. If you are covered by the Dutch social security system, you are also entitled to healthcare under the Health Insurance Act.
