Note: the information on this page is a brief outline of the reimbursement. You can only derive rights from our insurance conditions (pdf).
Spectacles and contact lenses at the appropriate strength are visual aids. You use them to improve your vision.
Do you suffer from a particular eye condition, or is the insured younger than 18? Then read our Medical Aids Regulations (pdf) for more information about optical aids.
You qualify for reimbursement of contact lenses or spectacle lenses at the appropriate strength when an eye test proves you need them. When you submit a claim, the invoice must clearly state the strength of the spectacle lenses or contact lenses.
Contact lenses or spectacle lenses at the appropriate strength do not fall under the public healthcare insurance if the insured does not suffer from a particular eye condition. We do offer a reimbursement on the basis of the supplementary Plus and Top insurances:
|Public Healthcare Insurance||Reimbursement|
|HollandZorg public healthcare insurance||none|
1 pair of glasses per 2 calendar years at Specsavers from the € 89 range or
1 pair of glasses per 2 calendar years at Specsavers from the € 149 range. or
|No Risk I||none|
|No Risk II||none|
You are entitled to:
- a complete pair of spectacles or contact lenses; or
- a reimbursement of the costs of:
- spectacle glasses or lenses
- a frame if purchased at the same time as the spectacle glasses.
The costs for care reimbursed by virtue of the supplementary insurance do not count towards your excess.
Spectacle lenses or contact lenses may be obtained from ophthalmic opticians with a qualified optometrist/contact lens specialist.
