1. What are elastic stockings?

Elastic stockings are stockings made of elastic material. They are also referred to as support stockings. Elastic stockings compensate for the loss of function of veins and lymphatic vessels in the legs. Elastic stockings improve the flow of blood in veins and the discharge of liquid in lymphatic vessels.

Dressing aids are available to help you put the stocking on and taking them off.

2. Prescription required for elastic stockings

For elastic stockings you need a prescription from the doctor in attendance. After three months, you can get another pair of stockings. You may qualify for reimbursement for replacement elastic stockings.

For dressing aids, you need a prescription from a physician or occupational therapist.

3. On loan or owner?

You will be the owner of the elastic stockings and the dressing aids.

5. Maximum rates non-contracted provider

If the medical aids are available from a contracted care provider in time, but you prefer to go to a non-contracted care provider, we will apply a maximum reimbursement. The non-contracted provider has to comply with the conditions set out in the Medical Aids Regulations (pdf).

A medical aid that we sell to you is reimbursed up to a maximum of 75% of the costs we would incur if you would have received the care from a contracted care provider. In that case, we also reimburse a maximum of 75% of any repair costs in connection with the medical aid.
