Rates and reimbursement

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.

Reimbursement

What is Generalist Basic GGZ and Specialized GGZ?

As of 1 January 2014, GGZ (Mental Health Care) has been transformed into a system with a Generalist Basic GGZ (GB-GGZ) and a Specialized GGZ (S-GGZ).

A distinction is made between the degree of intensity of the problems and the required care. The treatment of mild to moderate, non-complex psychological problems takes place by a (GZ) psychologist or therapist in the GB-GGZ. You can think of issues such as stress, burnout, depression, trauma, panic attacks, etc.

If the psychological problems are more serious and more complex, the treatment will take place in Specialized GGZ. The S-GGZ is characterized by a high degree of complexity of the treatment, which requires specialized knowledge. Often the treatment will take place by a clinical psychologist or psychotherapist.

How does it work?

To be eligible for insured care from the GB-GGZ, you must meet a number of conditions:

  • You need a referral from your doctor.
  • There must be an appropriate diagnosis.
  • The practitioner must be registered in the BIG-register and must have a quality statute.

You bring the referral from your doctor with you when you first meet one of our (GZ) psychologists. After the intake, the practitioner draws up a treatment plan and will discuss this with you in the next session. An indication is also given of the required number of sessions (this number can be expanded during the mid-term evaluation if necessary). If you agree with the treatment plan, treatment will be started.

Since 2014, you no longer receive compensation per hour, but per time package. These packages are also called ‘zorgzwaarteproducten’ or ‘performances’ and are based on a separate patient profile. The ‘zorgzwaarteproducten / performances’ within the GB-GGZ are subdivided into the following categories (maximum NZA * rate):

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

* The rates have been set by the Nederlandse Zorgautoriteit (NZA) for 2020. The amounts are free of VAT.

Unfortunately, not all health insurers use the market-based rate set by the NZA. Health insurers increasingly use the average rate for which they have purchased care from contracted health care providers and call this the average contracted rate. The rates therefore differ per health insurer.

Incomplete treatment process

The practitioner must charge this performance in three situations:

  • The referrer refers the patient to a practitioner in the GB-GGZ, but the practitioner does not identify a DSM disorder.
  • It is concluded early (treatment commitment of a maximum of 120 minutes direct and indirect patient-related time) that the patient should be treated in Specialized GGZ.
  • Early (treatment of a maximum of 120 minutes of direct and indirect patient-related time), treatment is interrupted by the patient and / or practitioner (for example, because the patient prefers another practitioner).

System-, relationship- and family therapy

In contrast to individual therapy, system-, relationship- and family therapy are unfortunately not yet reimbursed by the health insurer.

In some situations, a partial reimbursement is possible if the therapist is affiliated with a professional association, which is recognized by your health insurer. For questions about this, you can contact the practice assistant.

Please note: rarely a health insurer will reimburse (partial) system-, relationship- and family therapy if you have a referral from your doctor and if the practitioner is registered in the BIG- register.
This form of reimbursed therapy is not possible with Psychologen Amsterdam.

Additionally insured

There are certain symptoms that may have a psychological character, but the treatment of these symptoms are not covered by the basic insurance. This is the case if you do not have an ‘appropriate’ diagnosis (we mention a number of examples in the Reimbursement check). Ask your health insurer for the complete list!
Reimbursement of this care is sometimes eligible via the additional health care insurance (alternative medicine or psychological care supplement). This also applies to the treatments with our non-GZ psychologists who are affiliated with alternative professional associations. You can contact us about this.

‘Restitutiepolis’ (restitution package) or ‘naturapolis’ (basic package)

The reimbursement for a ‘restitutiepolis’ is higher than for a ‘naturapolis’. For the exact reimbursement, it is best to contact your insurance company or look at this link: https://contractvrijepsycholoog.nl/vergoedingen-2020.

Deductibles

The 2020 health insurance has a compulsory deductible of € 385,–. This deductible also applies to psychological care, regardless of whether or not the practitioner has contracts with health insurers.

Not using your insurance

It is possible not to declare your sessions with your insurer. In that case we will use the rate that you find on our Rates page.

Children and reimbursement

Since 2015, mental health care for children has been outsourced to the municipalities. This means that if your child needs psychological care and you want to be reimbursed, he / she will be referred to a psychologist who is contracted by the municipality. The disadvantage of this is that there are often long waiting lists and privacy is not always guaranteed.

Psychologen Amsterdam does not have a contract with the municipality. The costs are entirely for the parents. In this way we guarantee complete privacy for your child.
