The healthcare system and the way insurance is handled might be different than what you’re used to. We’ll give you a short overview on how it works here when it comes to insurance matters.
In the Netherlands it is mandatory to have basic health insurance. Treatment by the GP is general health care and is therefore covered by the insurance companies. Of course this is the case when you have Dutch health insurance. Any additional (lab) testing does cost money but is deducted from your deductible. If you’ve paid of your whole deductible, anything else will be covered.
If you have European Health Insurance we can declare your consultation at our practice for you at the insurance company. Make sure to bring your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) to every appointment so we can make a copy. The costs for a GP consultation is covered but additional testing is not. Check your policy for details. For more general information on the EHIC see: https://www.schengenvisainfo.com/europe-travel-insurance/ehic/
If you have AON Insurance we can also bill the costs directly to your insurance. We’ll need a copy of your ‘Certificate’ before we can do so. You can either bring a copy of this document or email it to us when you’re here.
If you don’t have any of the above mentioned insurances, you’ll probably have a form of Private Insurance. In this case we can not declare anything for you and you’ll have to pay for your consultation before it starts. The costs for a fysical appointment are € 73.82. For blood work and test materials we’ll also refer you to the laboratory. We only accept card payments.
Before any type of appointment (so also a telephone consultation or E-consultation) we need a copy of your insurance if you have AON insurance or the European Health Insurance Card. You can send a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org before your appointment.
