Please note: the information provided on this page is a summary of the reimbursement applicable. You will only be able to derive rights from our HollandZorg Conditions of Insurance (pdf).
Dietetic care consists of education, with a medical objective, about diet and eating habits and treatment in the form of dietotherapy aimed at removing, reducing or compensating diseases related to or influenced by diet, such as dieticians generally provide.
You are not entitled to dietetic care if you already receive this care for the same disorder within a framework of integrated care.
You will qualify for a reimbursement for dietary advice if you need adapted food or a special diet because of a disorder, for example.
For dietary advice from a non-contracted dietician, you need a referral from a general practitioner, a medical specialist, a youth doctor, doctor for the mentally disabled, company doctor or a geriatrics specialist. This does not apply to care provided by a contracted care provider who has successfully completed the Direct Access course. You must enclose a copy of the referral when submitting the invoice.
Under HollandZorg public healthcare insurance, you will qualify for the reimbursement of the costs of dietary advice.

If you decide to use a dietician for dietary advice and we have not made any agreements with this dietician, the rates applicable will be those on the Rate List for Non-Contracted Care. If the rates charged by the non-contracted care provider are higher than our maximum rates, the difference will be for your account.
You will not be subject to a statutory personal contribution for dietary advice.

- dietetic care in the event of Parkinson's disease: a dietician who is affiliated with the national ParkinsonNet network. Affiliation with the ParkinsonNet is not compulsory if the provision of care started before 1 January 2019;
