If you have questions about reimbursements of international insurance policies for your treatment (including student insurance), please check in with your insurance policy or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your treatment is eligible for reimbursement if you have a referral from your general practitioner for the Basic mental health care. Via the following link you can download a format for a referral letter:
Your doctor’s own letter that complies with the information from the standard referral letter is also sufficient. The referral letter will be sent by your doctor by post or safely via ‘ ‘Zorgdomein’. You can also take the referral letter to the intake interview, however if you cannot discuss this letter the interview won’t be possible.
This referral letter must at least meet the following requirements:
Reference date (this may not exceed six months before the first treatment date)
Name and function of your doctor
AGB code of your doctor
Stamp of the office and / or signature of your doctor
Client data (name and address details, date of birth)
Indication of the fact that reference is made to generalist basic mental health care.
No appointment can be scheduled for an intake if you cannot submit a referral from your general practitioner.
