Childcare during hospital admission

Childcare during hospital admission is the care for your children when you are hospitalised. The childcare is provided by a children's centre or childminder agency.


When do you qualify for reimbursement?

You are entitled to reimbursement of childcare from the 11th consecutive day of being hospitalised. You are hospitalised in order to receive care under the public health insurance. Your children must be younger than 12 and also be insured with HollandZorg.

The reimbursement only applies to childcare necessitated by your hospitalisation. The reimbursement does not apply for the number of hours of childcare which you would normally already have arranged.

Maximum rates for a non-contracted care provider

Have you chosen a healthcare provider with whom we have no contract? Then, we will reimburse according to our maximum rates. If the rate invoiced by the non-contracted care provider is higher than our maximum rates, you will have to pay the difference yourself. You will be able to find contracted care providers with our Care finder.
