Hospice staff are nurses and carers offering nursing care. A lot of hospices also employ a physician. Hospice care is also provided at the hospice unit of a nursing home or hospital. In addition, you can also go to a Home from Home if you need hospice care. The difference with a hospice is that a Home from Home is run entirely by volunteers. The nursing care is provided by the home care agency, while the medical care is provided by the GP.
Reimbursement hospice care
By virtue of the supplementary Plus and Top insurances, we reimburse the costs of the personal contribution charged by the hospice:
|Public Healthcare Insurance||Reimbursement|
|HollandZorg public healthcare insurance||none|
|Plus||€ 35 per day for a maximum of two months per calendar year|
|Top||€ 35 per day for a maximum of two months per calendar year|
|No Risk I
|No Risk II
Your stay at a hospice or Home from Home is subject to a personal contribution. The hospice or 'Bijna Thuis Huis' will charge you for the costs. The personal contribution is a payment that goes towards building maintenance, electricity and the meals you have.
Your stay and care at a hospice or Home from Home is not subject to an excess.
Who can you go to?
If you need hospice care, you can go to a 'Bijna Thuis Huis', an independent hospice or the hospice unit of a nursing home or hospital.

Maximum rates for a non-contracted care provider
If, for care included in the public healthcare insurance, you choose a healthcare provider with whom we have not made any agreements, the rates in the Rate list for non-contracted care will apply. Do the rates charged by the non-contracted healthcare provider exceed our maximum rates? In that case, the difference will be payable by you. This will apply for reimbursement both under the public healthcare insurance, and the supplementary insurance.
