Incontinence products are medical aids that absorb, discharge or collect urine and faeces. Examples of incontinence products are:
- urine collection bags;
- stoma products;
- catheters with bladder liquids;
- incontinence absorbent material;
- flushing equipment (anal);
- hernia braces.
Bedwetting alarms do not fall under the reimbursement of incontinence products. More information can be found under reimbursement of a bedwetting alarm.
For incontinence products, you need a prescription from a physician or specialist nurse.
You will be the owner of the incontinence products.
By virtue of the HollandZorg public healthcare insurance, you are entitled to a reimbursement for incontinence products:
|Public Healthcare Insurance||Reimbursement 2019|
|HollandZorg public healthcare insurance||100% in the case of contracted care|
If you are planning on going to a chemist or provider with whom we have not concluded an agreement in order to get incontinence products, we apply a maximum reimbursement for medical aids provided by non-contracted care providers. The non-contracted provider has to comply with the conditions set out in the Medical Aids Regulations (pdf).
A medical aid or dressing that we normally 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.
Incontinence products are not subject to a statutory personal contribution.
Are you 18 or older? The costs of incontinence products count towards the compulsory and, if applicable voluntary excess.
Incontinence products are available from a contracted chemist or provider of medical aids. Our Care Guide helps you find a contracted chemist or provider of medical aids near you.
If you opt for a non-contracted care provider to get incontinence products, this provider still has to be a chemist or S.E.M.H.-recognised provider of medical aids.
