The care performance model (Het zorgprestatiemodel)
The care performance model (ZPM) will be introduced on 1 January 2022. In the ZPM it has been agreed how your psychologist should charge for your treatment. And it has been agreed how the invoice should be paid. The ZPM is not about which care you receive or how you receive it.
You don’t have to do anything yourself. Your psychologist writes down all parts of the treatment in accordance to the agreements in the care performance model. The practice sends regularly and in a safe way the invoice to you or your health care insurer.
The sessions you have with your psychologist are called care performance (zorgprestaties) in the ZPM. The care performances will be on the invoice your psychologist will send to your health care insurer. Based on this, the health care insurer knows what to pay to your psychologist.
On the invoice overview of your health care insurer you can see which care performance your psychologist has given you. You can find the invoice overview at “my surrounding” of your health care insurer website or app. Or you find the overview on paper from your health care insurer. Your insurer can help you to understand the overview. Also, if you do have questions about the care performance, please contact your health care insurer.
What care performances are there?
There are different types of care performances: Praktijk voor Psychologie works with care performance “consultations” (consulten). Consultations are the conversations, in person or online, that you have with your psychologist. Sometimes something extra is needed during a consultation, such as travel time because your psychologist was at your home. These care services are called ‘allowances’ (toeslagen). These will be added to a consultation if applicable. Finally, there are some ‘other achievements’. For example, a ‘peer consultation’ by your psychologist.
