HEALTHCARE

WHAT TO DO AFTER ARRIVAL

Specialised psychological and psychiatric help for international guests

• There are many things you need to arrange before or after you arrive in the Netherlands. Arranging for healthcare is just one of them, but obviously very important, especially if you are bringing small children or have a medical condition yourself. • To arrange access to the Dutch healthcare you need to take the following steps: 1. Register at the local municipality. They will issue you and your family members a BSN (Citizen Service Number, ‘Burger Service Nummer’ -BSN). Sometimes you will need a residence permit first to obtain a BSN. If there is an ‘expat center’ in your region, they will help you in this process.

Feeling under pressure or depressed? Suffering from anxiety? Struggling with substance abuse or addiction? These are just some of the many mental health challenges you can face as an expatriate living in Holland, far from home. PsyQ International Mental Health Services are here to support you. We provide state of the art and discreet solutions to your mental health challenges. Mental health care begins with people, which is why our most unique resource is our staff of caring and deeply committed individuals. We have an international, multilingual team and consider ourselves to be a truly international mental health centre. All our staff are personally familiar with the expatriate experience and are officially registered professionals.

2. You may need to undergo a screening for TBC (Tuberculosis) to get a residence permit. You will get more information about this when contacting the municipality. Many nationalities are exempted from this obligation. 3. Arrange health insurance for you and your family members. In most cases you are obliged to take out Dutch health insurance, although there are exceptions. For this you will need a BSN. 4. Register with a GP in your area, even when not directly in need of a doctor. The GP (‘huisarts’) is the key to Dutch healthcare. For most of your medical needs he/she will be your first point of contact. To register with a GP you will need a valid health insurance and BSN. 5. Acquaint yourself with the Dutch healthcare system. It ranks among the best in the world, but some things, however, may be arranged in a way that is different than you are used to. Even if you have not yet been able to complete the abovementioned steps, Dutch healthcare will, of course, be available to you and your family in case of emergencies.
