What does ASR compensation mean for all victims of extortionate policies?
After years of legal battle, insurer ASR announced it would set aside €300 million to compensate customers with extortionate policies.

Acting as a malpractice surgeon
A FORMER dental surgeon is bombarding at least a hundred old clients with questionable bills. Although the invoices are from 2019 and are missing important data, the former oral surgeon is threatening collection agencies if clients don’t pay. While he himself owed huge sums of money to health insurance companies, he defrauded them through statements. For example, treatment of benign tumors is advertised significantly more often: 1,000 times more than the national average. Who is this man and why is he behaving this way? Fons goes looking for him.

Uncertainty about the wait time for additional orthodontic insurance
Let’s say you have supplemental orthodontic insurance, but want higher coverage because orthodontic costs are higher than you thought. It is possible for higher coverage with higher premiums from the same insurance company. However, it is not clear to you that you will have to pay the higher premium for an additional year, without being able to claim back the costs of the stent in that year. This is called surplus pay. Not every insurance company is equally clear about this. Will they amend the information provided about this?
