Psychological treatment can be covered by your basic health insurance package. If you would like to use insurance to cover the sessions, you need a referral letter for Gespecialiseerde GGZ (SGGZ) from your GP. The referral needs to include the following: GP’s AGB-code, verwijzing sggz, DSM-5 diagnosis.
Without health insurance, clients can pay for counseling sessions privately.
We do not have contracts with health insurance companies so you will initially need to pay for the treatment yourself and provide the invoice to your insurance, who will reimburse you according to your insurance package. We work according to the NZA rules (Nederlandse Zorgautoriteit meaning Dutch government regulations for healthcare). Please, contact your health insurance provider for specific information on your exact percentage of reimbursement. This can vary between 60-100%.
Rates for 2023 sessions are
Treatment-session : € 176,30
Intake/diagnostic-session : € 199,34
We understand that you have a life with its own commitments and that everyone has unexpected changes to their schedule. With more than 48 hours’ notice, we are happy to try to accommodate your schedule to the best of our ability.
However, if you need to cancel or reschedule a session, we ask that you provide two business days (48 hours) notice. A session can only be rescheduled or cancelled via e-mail. This means that appointments scheduled for a Monday must be cancelled on or before the preceding Thursday before 12 pm. If you miss a session without canceling, or cancel too late, our policy is to collect € 75,- no-show fee.
It is important to note that insurance companies do not provide reimbursement for “late cancellation” or “no show” sessions. Thus, you will be responsible for the portion of the fee as described above.
Couple’s counseling is not reimbursed by the Dutch health insurance. One session of couple’s counseling takes 60 minutes and costs € 199,34- (excl. 21% VAT).
