You can pay the insurance premium after arriving in the Netherlands. Your insurance will give you coverage from the starting date. When you receive your Dutch bank account number, you can upload this number in your account with the insurance company OOM Verzekeringen.
OOM Verzekeringen will then deduct the premium automatically from your bank account every month.
When you don’t upload your bank account number with the insurance company, you will receive by e-mail a payment link from OOM Verzekeringen. Using this link, you can pay the premium.
You can upload your bank account number and change your address in the online environment of OOM Verzekeringen. Most likely you already activated your account.

It goes without saying you can see a GP of your choice. Perform a Google search: huisarts, streetname, city.
Your search result will list all general practitioners in your area. It is not uncommon the GP will bill you during your visit. It is customary to pay upfront and get reimbursed afterwards by the insurance company. (You can upload your invoice in your “OOM Verzekeringen” account).
You can also visit the following website with information about general practitioners in Delft:
In the Netherlands the first one to see, when you don’t feel well is a general practitioner (GP). He/she will advise you on what to do, look for the cause and suggest treatments. You need a referral from a general practitioner for medicines, a medical test or to see a specialist in the hospital.
In the Netherlands, you can’t go directly to the hospital. In case of real emergency the emergcy number is 112.
Also please see the answer of the next question, Who can I contact in the evening, night or weekend when the general practitioner is not available?
When you feel sick during your GP’s of duty hours you can call him/she to get the details of an on-duty GP service. In every city there is a GP service website/phone number you can call. During a brief telephone interview the GP service will determine if it is necessary for you to visit the GP service (called huisartsenpost).
For Delft for example: huisartsenpost Delft.
