Who pays the costs of an abortion?
Abortion clinics are granted a subsidy from the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport for the work they do.
Who qualifies for free treatment?
Abortion treatments are free of charge for everyone who is insured in terms of the Long-Term Care Act (Wlz). Anyone legally living or working in the Netherlands is insured for this and is entitled to free treatment. In general, people living illegally or temporarily in the Netherlands are not insured in terms of the Long-Term Care Act and must personally pay for the treatment.
