Prices / reimbursement

Examination and treatment costs

If you have been referred by your general practitioner, the costs of the examination (approx. 320 euro) will be covered by your basic insurance and will be reimbursed in full. Please take the deductible into account: this is the statutory compulsory annual contribution of 385,- euro (or higher if you have agreed this with your health insurer). This excess applies to all hospitals and clinics in the Netherlands.

Not all treatment options are covered by your insurance. Whether or not your treatment will be reimbursed depends on the diagnosis.

If the diagnosis meets the requirements of the Zorginstituut Nederland, the treatment will be covered by your basic insurance. Please note that all reimbursements from the basic insurance will be deducted from your own risk.
