No change to provisions for patient transport for ZVK insured individuals, only for carriers

The BES Healthcare Insurance Office, ZVK, has made a few minor adjustments effective January 1st 2020 with regard to patient transport for insured people in accordance with the Care Claims Regulation, the so-called RAZ BES. This mainly concerns changes to carriers on Bonaire and Sint Maarten.

Medical transportation

From January 1st, 2020, patient transport on Bonaire, mainly with regard to wheelchair bus transport for ZVK insured persons (with prior permission from the ZVK), will be carried out by the transportation company Blessing Transport. The transport facilities such as elderly transport remain unchanged.

On Sint Maarten or Saint Martin patient transport will be carried out by the transport company SC & Marine Services. This concerns transportation from Juliana airport to treatment centers and back.
With regard to transport companies at the other destinations for medical referrals, these remain unchanged, namely Armada Port Services on Aruba and Catharina Care Foundation on CuraƧao. The procedures for using these transport facilities remain unchanged.

Patient transport "on location" on Saba and St. Eustatius also remains unchanged. Accessible Ventures Sint Eustatius and Accessible Ventures Saba will continue to provide this service.
