The BES healthcare insurance is the general healthcare insurance for the islands Bonaire, St. Eustatius and Saba.
The healthcare insurance has been valid since 1 January 2011 and provides medical care and long-term care. All insured persons with an income pay a healthcare premium through income tax. The healthcare premium is calculated in relation to your income. For more information about this, you can consult the Dutch Caribbean Tax Authorities.
The healthcare insurance is based on the BES Healthcare Insurance Decree (Besluit zorgverzekering BES) and the BES Healthcare Insurance Claims Regulation (Regeling aanspraken zorgverzekering BES).
