Basic package Menzis

The basic insurance of Menzis reimburses the most basic care, such as general practitioner care, the reimbursement of medication and, for example, hospital transport or hospital stay. Although the cover in the basic package is the same with every insurer, you can choose from different policies.

The most advantageous variant (Basis Voordelig) offers an online platform where you can arrange your insurance matters yourself without personal contact. In addition, the reimbursement for care providers with whom Menzis does not have a contract is much lower. On the other hand, the Basis Vrij package gives you freedom of choice in care providers at a higher premium. Even if you have not concluded a contract with them, they will reimburse you the full amount.

Additional packages Menzis

Do you opt for the Menzis Basis Voordelig basic insurance? You can extend this insurance with the supplementary packages ‘Aanvullend’ and ‘Aanvullend Extra’. If you opt for Menzis Basis or Menzis Basis Vrij, you can choose from the ExtraVerzorgd1, ExtraVerzorgd 2, ExtraVerzorgd 3 and JongerenVerzorgd packages. Coverage varies from physiotherapy and dental costs to emergency care abroad. In general, the higher the premium of the package, the more extensive the reimbursements.

Especially for students: JongerenVerzorgd

Menzis has created the Youth Care package, especially for young people and students. The package contains reimbursements that are interesting for students, including contraception, dental visits or physiotherapy.

Depending on your care needs, you can opt for a more or less extensive supplement to your basic insurance. The Youth Care package is in line with the average care need of a young student. This package offers cover for the most common health care costs that you may encounter as a student. The ExtraVerzorgd packages do not offer additional cover for dental costs. Are you looking for additional reimbursement for dental costs? You can take out various additional dental insurance policies with Menzis.

Additional dental insurance

Through the basic insurance of Menzis, children up to the age of 18 are fully reimbursed for dental costs via the parents’ health insurance. From the age of 18, the reimbursement of dental costs is not included in the basic package, which means that if you are looking for reimbursement for dental costs, you can take out additional dental insurance. You can choose from three insurance options: TandVerzorgd 250, TandVerzorgd 500 or TandVerzorgd 750.

Extra diensten Menzis
