Are you an asylum seeker?
During the asylum procedure asylum seekers are assisted by the Central Agency for the Reception of Asylum Seekers (Centraal Orgaan opvang Asielzoekers, COA). During the asylum procedure asylum seekers are insured in accordance with the Asylum Seekers Healthcare Regulations (Regeling Zorg Asielzoekers, RZA). Under these regulations asylum seekers are entitled to reimbursement of treatment as included in the Dutch basic healthcare insurance, with the exception of treatment for transsexuality, in-vitro fertilisation and all similar forms of treatment. At the LUMC asylum seekers can receive treatment if they show their RZA card. Furthermore, like all other insured persons, they require a referral from a GP, dentist, obstetrician, etc. for specialist medical treatment.
