Healthcare Expense becomes Unaffordable for People of Netherlands


Thousands of families in the Netherlands are struggling to maintain up with healthcare expenses and as a consequence, RTL Nieuws reports based on their studies. According to the channel, some individuals had to take hopeless steps such as selling their home, divorcing or canceling holidays.

Thirty-eight percent of the 1,250 RTL Nieuws families spoke so far that they were no longer able to satisfy ends because of healthcare expenses. 21% Refused or postponed paying attention to saving expenses. 15% Loans have been taken out or other debts have been made to cover their healthcare costs. Eighty percent of respondents said they were struggling to cover personal contributions to medicines, 67 percent were unable to afford specialist costs, and 34 percent were unable to afford physiotherapy costs.

The broadcaster spoke to a female with MS nerve disease who is unable to maintain up with her medical expenditures with her monthly revenue of 500 euros. They sometimes manage to get by with their boyfriend’s minimum wage revenue, but sometimes they also have to get assistance from their relatives or colleagues. She said to the broadcaster, “That doesn’t feel good.” “I’m trying to live as independently as possible with the tools I have. But because the cost of healthcare is so high, I’m still dependent on others differently.”

Because MS is a progressive disease, it will only increase its healthcare expenses. She wants to enjoy the time she’s gone, but she said she can’t. “If my friends are going to do something enjoyable, I have to create a decision: do I go to the movie theater or pay a fee? That implies I often have to cancel my visits. It’s not enjoyable for me and my colleagues like it less and less,” she said. “It’s frustrating, it’s causing a ton of stress and it’s making me hopeless.”

Another female informed RTL how she had to divorce her spouse after he had a brain disease to calculate independently their childcare benefit and healthcare donations.
