Fees

Insured treatment

In most cases, psychological treatment at Move for Motion will be completely or partially reimbursed by the insurer. In the case of ‘insured treatment’, there will have to be a diagnosis of which treatment is reimbursed. Also, you will need a referral from your general practitioner or medical specialist.

Treatment costs are determined by the Dutch Healthcare Authority [Nederlandse Zorgautoriteit, or NZa] and categorised into four different groups, depending on the amount of time used for face-to-face contact, calls, e-mails, administration, etc.

Basis GGZ ‘Short’ max. 294 minutes EUR 507,62
Basis GGZ ‘Middle’ max. 495 minutes EUR 864,92
Basis GGZ ‘Intensive’ max. 750 minutes EUR 1.356,25
Basis GGZ ‘Chronic’ max. 753 minutes EUR 1.251,70

If treatment is ended after the intake procedure (max. 120 min.), because for instance general mental health care [basis GGZ] does not offer the right treatment for you, the NZa rate is EUR 207,19.

Because we can only determine the amount of time which has been spent on treatment, when treatment has ended, this is when you will receive the invoice. The costs of your treatment must be paid directly to Move for Motion. You can then submit your invoice for reimbursement by your insurer.

Reimbursement

Move for Motion works ‘contract-free’, which means we are not contracted by any insurer.

But in the case of ‘insured treatment’ you can of course submit your invoice for reimbursement by your insurer. If you have a non-contracted care policy [restitutiepolis], you are likely to receive 100% of the NZa rate from your insurer. If you have a contracted care policy [naturapolis] you will likely receive 70%-80% of this rate.

Your insurer can tell you what kind of insurance policy you have and what percentage will be reimbursed. In all cases, it is recommended that you consult your insurance policy. Do also keep in mind that any possible reimbursement may be subtraced from your deductible. The statutory deductible in 2019 is a minimum of EUR 385,00.

For more information [in Dutch] about your insurance policy and what it reimburses in 2019, see the website Contractvrije Psycholoog. At the end of each year you can choose to change your insurer.

Non-insured treatment

Currently, treatment of relational problems, some sexual disorders, specific phobia or stress disorders is not reimbursed by most insurers. Sometimes an additional insurance will cover treatment costs. Your insurer will be able to provide you with more information on this topic.

  • For a 60-minute intake session EUR 130,00 will be charged.
  • For a 45-minute individual treatment session EUR 105,00 will be charged.
  • When you and your partner come together, for example when in therapy for relational problems or in therapy for a sexual disorder, EUR 130,00 will be charged per 60-minute treatment session.
  • Costs for telephone/e-mail consults are EUR 32,50 per 15 minutes.

In the case of non-insured treatment, you will receive an invoice after each session (NZa rate). The costs of your treatment must be paid to Move for Motion.

Cancellation

If you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment, you must do so at least 24 hours in advance. You can cancel or reschedule by phone or e-mail.

  • A fee of EUR 52,50 will be charged for cancellations within less than 24 hours of the appointment (also in circumstances beyond your control, e.g. sickness, weather or traffic conditions).

N.B. The fees mentioned above apply when insurers do not have a contract with the concerning practitioner. When an insurer does have a contract with a practitioner, other fees may apply.
