Rates and reimbursements

Overview

Reimbursements insured care

 

The Dutch Healthcare Authority (NZA) has set maximum rates per product within the GBGGZ. Depending on agreements with your health insurer, the amounts declared may deviate from this.

From the basic insurance you are entitled to reimbursement of psychological help in the GB-GGZ. You need a referral from your General Practitioner to be eligible for reimbursement.

For 2021, Praktijk voor Psychologie has contracts with all Dutch Healthcare Insurers for the GB-GGZ, with the exception Eucare Aevitea (de Caresq groep, uzovi 3360).

Of course you are responsible for having a valid health insurance policy and you have to inform yourself of the policy conditions. Praktijk voor Psychologie cannot be held liable if treatment appears not to be reimbursed by your insurance, for example because you have opted for a reduced basic insurance policy or have already used psychological care. Also, Praktijk voor Psychologie cannot declare to the health insurer without a letter of referral. You will be charged for costs that cannot be claimed under a health insurance policy. Remember that your insurer will charge you for the compulsory deductible.

Rates for uninsured care

 

If Praktijk voor Psychologie does not have a contract with your health insurer, the reimbursement will be processed via the following route: At the end of the treatment, you will receive a total invoice from Praktijk voor Psychologie that you must pay to Praktijk voor Psychologie. You can then submit the total invoice yourself to your health insurer. Your health insurer will then reimburse part of the costs. How much depends on each health insurer and it is up to you to inquire about this. Praktijk voor Psychologie can prepare interim invoices that will be settled later with the final invoice.

The OVP consult (Other product) performance is invoiced for care that is not included in the basic package under the Health Insurance Act. This includes in any case: psychological complaints without a DSM-V classification (Diagnostical Statistical Manual), adjustment disorders, relationship problems and work-related problems.

Another reason may also be that you do not feel comfortable sharing information about your psychological well-being with the health insurer. In that case you can also choose not to use reimbursement.

Finally, at the end of a GBGGZ trajectory/ product, you may need more psychological care while it is no longer covered by reimbursed care. In that case it is also possible to schedule additional sessions/consults. You can also pay for this per session/consult.

You do not need a referral for the OVP.
OVP, missed appointments and coaching are invoiced to you monthly.

The rate for Other Product (OVP) is:
€228,- intake (session en treatment plan)
€114,- per session.
€228,- double session

A session consists of 45 minutes of direct client contact and 15 minutes of indirect time.

In addition to a full session, there are the following options:
Half consultation (max. 25 minutes of direct time):
€57,-.

Telephone consultation (max. 10 minutes):
€28,50.

For companies or freelancers it might be important to know that the costs can be claimed as coaching and can thus be claimed as business costs. VAT is then added to the price.
