Why do a new-born baby receive an insurance card for only three (3) months?

If the child is not a Dutch citizen, and one (1) of the parents is in the possession of a valid residency permit, then after three (3) months the parents must submit a valid passport and a valid residency permit, so that the baby can be eligible to receive a card renewal.
