NO, there is no opt out! The Dutch government has passed a law allowing insurance companies to access medical files with a “suspicion of fraud” (whatever that is) and only have to tell the person who’s privacy has been infringed three months later.

Medical privacy is one of the last untouchable bastions of privacy, I would have thought, but no, it’s been smashed. Fuckheads.
