Refugees from Ukraine with a citizen service number (BSN) will be covered by the Medical Care of Displaced Persons Regulation (RMO) from 1 July 2022. On this page you will find all the important information about the RMO.

This is the Displaced Persons Medical Care Regulation (RMO)

The Displaced Persons Medical Care Regulation (RMO) is a regulation that allows the claiming of care, for refugees from Ukraine. As of 1 July, the RMO applies to working and non-working refugees from Ukraine who are registered in the BRP and thus possess a BSN. This means that you no longer have to buy your own health insurance and are automatically covered by the RMO. For the RMO, you do not pay a healthcare premium nor do you receive a care allowance.

This care is covered by the regulation (RMO)

The RMO covers all care in the standard package, but it also has several extensions. For example, additional coverage includes:

  • Oral care in case of acute pain up to 250 euros (1x per year);

  • Glasses and hearing aids (with permission);

  • Specific medicines;

  • Contraception;

  • Abortion care.

Please note: did you receive abortion care between 1 March and 1 July? Then your care provider can still claim these costs via the RMO, from 1 august onwards.
