Psychology counseling (GB GGZ)
For people who use Dutch insurances, and need to be treated within GB GGZ (first line psychology treatment) is important to know that Dutch insurances are refunding the packages from 5 to 12 sessions per year in GB GGZ. Depending from the intensity of your complaint is to be agreed with your psychologist which package is the most suitable for you. The possibilities are short, medium, intensive and chronicle.
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.

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.
