Rates and insurers

In 2021 you are entitled to reimbursement of many forms of psychological help in the Generalist Basic GGZ (GB-GGZ) under the basic insurance. The reimbursement does fall under the statutory deductible excess.

To be eligible for reimbursement, you need a referral from your general practitioner or medical specialist. You can hand this referral over to the relevant psychologist during the intake.

Most of our psychologists do not have contracts with health insurers (this is a contract-free psychologist). If you want to be eligible for full reimbursement with any of them, a pure refund policy is needed. Part of the policy is reimbursed for a policy in kind or budget kind. On our website you can see which psychologists have a contract with which insurers.

Psyche en Pregnancy is not a treatment institution but a referral and knowledge center. All psychologists affiliated with Psyche en Pregnancy are independent GZ psychologists. So they have their own practice. The rate that is used for non-reimbursed care is € 90 – € 110 per session. In the case of non-reimbursed care you will of course not have to deal with the statutory deductible excess.

The intake interview is always reimbursed if there is a referral from the doctor or general practitioner. The intake will always consist of at least one interview, sometimes one or more diagnostic questionnaires will be used.

On the basis of criteria set by the government, the psychologist determines whether you qualify for reimbursed care on the basis of your diagnosis and which treatment plan of GB-GGZ is appropriate for your complaints.
1) GB-GGZ short 294 minutes
2) GB-GGZ average 495 minutes
3) GB-GGZ intensive 750 minutes

Everything must be done within the duration of the chosen treatment process: consultations, administration, diagnostics, consultation with the general practitioner, telephone contact, e-mail contact, consultation with specialists, etc. Occasionally, the intake will show that referral (via the GP) to a Specialist Mental Healthcare is required. These treatments are always reimbursed.

Some minor complaints, such as adjustment disorders, work and relationship problems, are excluded from general basic care insurance. If this is established on the basis of your complaints during the reimbursed intake, a referral to the GP may occur. The help that the GP can provide with the POH-GGZ may then be sufficient.

If you choose to receive treatment from the relevant psychologist, you must pay for the treatment yourself, possibly under the supplementary insurance.
