Psychology counseling (GB GGZ)

For people who use Dutch insurances, as of 2022, the Care Performance Model (ZPM) will apply. Information about the ZPM can be found here.

This means that the duration of a consultation determines the rate (planning = realization). This is based on the time that is scheduled. In case of deviations of more than 15 minutes, the agenda (and therefore also the declaration) will be adjusted accordingly. You will be billed monthly to your health insurer. The amount per session varies also from type of the contract with your insurance. The amount can not exceed max NZA rate (usually is 80-90% of NZA rate).

To be treated within GB GGZ you need to have a valid referral letter from your GP with a clear indication of a diagnose which falls under the DSM V.

If, after the intake, is to be found that your problems are to light or to complicated to be treated within the GBGGZ you will be referred back to your general practitioner (huisarts) in order to find the best suitable help for you.

If practice has a contract with your insurance, after the treatment is finished the bill will be send directly to your insurance company. You are still obliged to pay for own risk of 385e, backt to your insurance company, for the first yearly use of insurance.

If you have international insurance please call me for the details. Most of the International insurances cover at least 10 sessions with accredited counselor, per year.

What if the practice does not have contract with your insurance?

If the practice does not have contract with your insurance, the bill will be send directly to you. For non-contracted care, I use 100% of the NZA rate. In average 75% of the cost will be still refunded from your insurance company. Please check your insurance for exact information.

Are all psychological problems covered from your basic insurance police?

Unfortunately, the treatment of some problems like: relations problems, work related problems, adjustment disorders and grieving are not covered with your basis insurance police. If you have additional insurance (aanvullende verzekering) you might get coverage of these problems too. If unsure, please check with your insurance. The rate for uninsured care is € 140 per session of 45 minutes of direct time and 15 minutes of indirect time and 160e for sessions of 60 minutes. No referral from the general practitioner is required for this.

If in doubt please give me a call so I can explain this in more details.

No show!

If you are ot able to come, please cancel your session at least 24 hours before via e-mail or telephone call. In case of no show you are required to pay 120e yourself.
