Small increase in health insurance premiums for next year
The premium for basic health insurance will increase with about 3,50 euros next year, bringing the premium to 103 euros per month, AD reports based on Budget Day documents the newspaper managed to get a look at. According to the newspaper, the increase is so small due to measures that resulted in more efficient work measures that Minister Edith Schippers of Public Health already implemented. This increase is only one estimate. Insurers will determine their own rates at a later date. The maximum care allowance will also be slightly higher next year, according to AD. The increase amounts to about 2 euros a month. On Tuesday it was announced that the healthcare deductibles will not increase next year, staying at 385 euros.
