With health insurance, money is firmly insured again

These are preliminary figures, reports Zorgverzekeraars Nederland. For example, policyholders who canceled their old policy before December 31, but have not yet taken out a new one, have not yet been accepted. You have until January 31st.

The abolition of the discount on collective health insurance in 2023 will again not lead to more people switching. Last year, the collective discount on basic insurance was halved from 10% to a maximum of 5%. It was expected that as a result, more people would switch.


According to Zorgverzekeraars Nederland, many more people have focused on the health insurance offer. “In 2020, the focus was on supply by corona. As a result, more policyholders appear to have received information about the insurance offer before deciding to switch or stay with their health insurer, “said the umbrella organization.

The switching percentage has fluctuated between 6 and 7% for years. The final number of switches will be announced at the end of February. That was 6.5% last year.
