Costs and compensation

Since January 1, 2014 psychological counseling for sexual problems, relationship difficulties and problems with adjusting to life events will not be reimbursed by the Dutch health insurance. 

However, if you have additional insurance it may be possible that your health insurance will reimburse these consultations. 

I do not have contracts with insurance companies, so it relates to non-contracted psychological and sexological help. Please check your insurance policy regarding possible reimbursement. It may be advisable to contact your health care provider in advance. If a non-Dutch health insurance company insures you, I advise you to consult with them for information about possible compensation. 

A referral from a MD is mandatory for compensation from your health insurance. This must be sent to me before or brought to the first consultation.

Costs of consultation:

Paying yourself
It is possible to pay for the counseling yourself. 
The cost for an individual consultation, 60 minutes: € 100
The cost for a relationship consultation, 90 minutes: € 150 

The consultations with me are billed monthly as an "uninsured product" (OZP).
OZP 60 minutes (individual) = E 100,00
OZP 90 minutes (relationship therapy) = E 150,00

An invoice for relationship therapy, if requested, can be split and sent to both partners.

Compensation for psychological help via the General Basic GGZ (mental health) insurance

Sex therapy, relationship therapy and problemen with adjusting to life events (eg. divorce, illness) are not insured by the basic insurance. This means that psychological care I offer is not insured and you will have to pay for this yourself. (again, please consult your insurance if you have additional insurance or foreign insurance for possible coverage.) 

Here is the list of prices for the different products that are insured in the  General Basic GGZ.  It is important to know that there is an own risk.  (2016 is 385€ and counts for all health care costs in the basis insurance)

PRICE LIST CARE PRODUCTS:  (prices as of January 1st, 2019)

Psychological care short                       €    507,62

Psychological care middle                864,92

Single consultation (session = 45 minutes + 15 minutes administration)             95.00

Transition product  (not more than 2 sessions without leading to a treatment)       207,19

These prices are meant for consumers who are covered by health insurance companies that do not have a contract with the psychologist.

This price list complies with the rules of the “regeling generalistische basis GGZ van de Nederlandse Zorgautoriteit, NR/CU-350”
