Fines for people without health insurance pay off
Monday 09 January 2012
Over 100,000 people have taken out insurance since the health insurance board began a campaign to get them to pay up, the Telegraaf reports on Monday.
However, some 55,000 people have so far failed to take out insurance, despite running the risk of a heavy fine, the paper says.
The CVZ launched its campaign to reduce the number of people without insurance in March 2011.
Health insurance, which is compulsory, currently costs around €1,200 a year plus a €220 own-risk payment.
