Rates as of January 1, 2020
Psychologen Amsterdam has no contracts with health insurance companies, but the treatments with our GZ psychologists can be reimbursed (55% – 100%) afterwards. This means that you first pay the bill yourself and then submit it to your health care provider.
We are not contracted with health insurers because we prefer to guarantee your privacy and we do not provide your data to the national DBC Information System DIS.
1. Reimbursed care
Individual therapy, costs GZ psychologist
In accordance with the guidelines of the NZA (Nederlandse Zorgautoriteit), you can be classified according to your mental problems into the following ‘zorgzwaarteproducten’ / ‘performances’. The amount stated per performance is the maximum amount to be reimbursed. The amounts are exempt from VAT.
Short (approx. 4 sessions) € 503,47
Medium (approx. 7 sessions) € 853,38
Intensive (max. 11 sessions) € 1.383,65
Incomplete treatment process (max. 120 minutes) € 219,78
You advance an amount of € 125,– per session (of 45 minutes) and you may pay a remaining amount at the end.
After the end of your individual treatment process, you will receive the summary invoice from the treating psychologist and you can submit it to your health insurer. You can be eligible for full (‘restitutiepolis’) or partial (‘naturapolis’) reimbursement. Contact your health insurer for this. See Reimbursement to read what the conditions are for qualifying for this type of reimbursed care.
After the end of your individual treatment process, you will receive the summary invoice from the treating psychologist and you can submit it to your health insurance. You may be eligible for a full or a partially reimbursement. Please contact your health care provider for more information.
2. Non-reimbursed care
Individual therapy, costs (GZ) psychologist / therapist
If you are not eligible for reimbursed care, the rate below applies to individual therapy:
Onverzekerd product Consult (OVP / OZP (Uninsured product Consult) – approx. 45 minutes): € 110,–. A number of psychologists are planning a double intake session of 90 minutes and costs € 220,–. The practice assistant will inform you.
Each follow-up session takes 45 minutes and costs € 110,–.
If the treatment takes place by a psychologist or GZ psychologist, the rate is exempt from VAT. Most practitioners within the practice are (GZ) psychologists.
Only a small number of system-, relationship- and family therapists also receive clients for individual therapy. If treatment takes place by a therapist (not being a (GZ) psychologist), then we are obliged to charge 21% VAT.
System-, relationship- and family therapy, costs (GZ)psychologist / therapist
In contrast to individual therapy, system-, relationship- and family therapy are unfortunately not yet reimbursed by the health insurance company and are not yet exempt from VAT. We are therefore obliged to charge VAT.
The intake takes 75 minutes for most therapists and the costs are € 211,75 (incl. VAT). Afterwards you and the therapist discuss the possible follow-up process and the best way to plan the appointments. This means that follow-up appointments can take 45, 60, 75 or 90 minutes.
• 90 minutes: € 210,– (excl. VAT), € 254,10 (incl. VAT)
• 75 minutes: € 175,– (excl. VAT), € 211,75 (incl. VAT)
• 60 minutes: € 140,– (excl. VAT), € 169,40 (incl. VAT)
• 45 minutes: € 105,– (excl. VAT), € 127,05 (incl. VAT)
Individual coaching / business coaching
In contrast to individual therapy, coaching is unfortunately not reimbursed by the health insurance company and is not exempt from VAT. We are therefore obliged to charge VAT.
A coaching process consists of an intake interview of 1,5 hours. During the intake we discuss how the follow-up process will look like. This means that sessions of 45 minutes or 1,5 hours are scheduled for the follow-up process. The rate for a 45-minute session is € 125,– (excluding 21% VAT). The rate for a 1,5-hour session is € 250,– (excluding 21% VAT). If your employer would like to offer you this coaching process, we can prepare a plan together.
3. Pay and cancel
After the session you can pay the amount per pin. An appointment is not without obligation. If you are unable to come to an appointment, we would like you to cancel the appointment as soon as possible so that we can schedule another appointment. You can do this by e-mail up to 48 hours, 2 working days in advance. If you do not cancel the appointment in time or you do not appear, we are forced to charge the costs.
