Reimbursement incontinence products
By virtue of the HollandZorg public healthcare insurance, you are entitled to a reimbursement for incontinence products:
|Public Healthcare Insurance||Reimbursement|
|HollandZorg public healthcare insurance||100% in the case of contracted care|
Maximum rates non-contracted provider
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.
No statutory personal contribution
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.
Who can you go to?
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.
