Raw Deal?

As a Netherlands resident, I have heard strange stories about banks doing x or saying y when it comes to creating accounts, usually for Non-EU citizens, but this one is a bit over the top. Health insurance is mandatory in NL and I don't think it just gets cut off by your employer effective immediately as YOU the insured have to pay for a substantial duration (3 months?) at the beginning.

In the Netherlands it's not about being told "no" but about asking the question differently to get to 'Ja'
