Financial Information

Insurance

Psychotherapy services are in the “basis verzekering”of Dutch health insurance. If you need reimbursement from your health insurance, a referral letter from your huisarts is essential. This letter must stipulate “Gespecialiseerde GGZ" and a diagnosis. The practice does not have contracts with insurance companies. It is the client’s responsibility to investigate the amount of reimbursement given. A “restitutiepolis” generally offers the best coverage for health providers who don't have contracts with insurers-“ongecontracteerde zorg”.

Tariffs

The tariff is based on the Nederlandse Zorg Authoriteit.

Outside the “Gespecialiseerde GGZ” structure, the fee for a session of 45 minutes is €140.

Cancellation

If you need to change or cancel a session please call or text +31 6 24824068. I require 48 hours notice for a cancellation. Otherwise the regular fee will be charged.
