Health Premium Subsidies 2006

4.9 million Netherlanders received health premium subsidies last year, totaling 2,5 billion euros.

According the the bureau of statistics 1 out of every 3 persons over 18 yrs of age was entitles to premium subsidies. The average was 480 euros per year.

The subsidies are handed out according to a persons income. The less the income the more you are subsidies. The maximum one (a family) can receive is 1155 euros.


Again, to have a look at how a family situation of two adults is affected by the Dutch health insurance premiums have a look at an earlier post of mine.
