One of the biggest failings of the dutch, modern-day health insurance IMO is the no-claim part.
This year, like last year, our insurer has notified us that Marli has only use about twenty euros of her claim limit. Hence, they'll be paying us back about 230 euros. This is all kind of neat, were it not for the fact that about 80% of Marli's bills haven't been claimed yet. Just like last year. And just like last year, these bills will roll in around June, ensuring that we have to pay back the whole amount by then.
This whole problem is absolutely not out fault. Instead, it lies with our GP, our hospital and the various specialists that we've visited. -None- of these folks ever file their claims in time, meaning that the insurer can't make the proper calculations. Some of these guys are over a year late with their claims!
Today, I'm going to call our insurer and just ask them to postpone paying out our no-claim for a few months. I really don't feel like getting in trouble when summer comes around.
