Are you a trans person and do you need care? For specific transgender care, you need a referral from your general practitioner. After that, you can go to the hospital. The hospitals that offer transgender care are: - Amsterdam UMC - Groningen UMC

Good to know: both hospitals have long waiting lists.

Treatment is covered by Dutch health insurance. However, not everything is covered by the basic coverage plan (Basisverzekering). Ask the hospital about this. The Basic coverage plan covers:

  • psychological help
  • hormone treatment (the hormones themselves and the supervision by the doctor)
  • the SRS (operation).

You can read more information on the website of Transvisie.. The site is available in Dutch and English.
