SINT MAARTEN/THE NETHERLANDS – Some 1.1 million people have switched health insurance company during the most recent transfer window, according to preliminary figures from health insurer association ZN.
That would mean 6.6% of all policy holders moved to a new provider this year, up from 6.2% in 2017, ZN said. That percentage can still change because not all applications have yet been processed.
People had until January 1 to cancel their old insurance policy but until February 1 to choose a new health insurance company. ‘People really do have something to choose from and we can see that they are now doing this,’ ZN chairman André Rouvoet said.(DutchNews)
