Arrange your insurance
According to Dutch law it is compulsory for participants to have valid health insurance coverage during their stay in the Netherlands. As a service IHS can arrange health insurance for participants through IPS insurance. IPS insurance gives international coverage for costs regarding medical expenses as well as legal liability ('third party'), fire and theft and luggage insurance. The policy conditions can be found here. This insurance costs around EUR 1.30 EUR per day or EUR 40 per month. (IHS does not charge any handling fee for this service.)
The IPS insurance is valid worldwide. Please note that the insurance does not cover costs for preexisting medical conditions. Expenses not covered by the insurance have to be paid by the participant him or herself.
For participants holding an NFP or Stuned fellowship we will automatically arrange for an IPS health insurance as part of the fellowship. They are covered from the day they fly to the Netherlands until their return to their home country.
