Geriatric rehabilitation care
The object of geriatric rehabilitation care is to reduce functional limitations in order to enable you to return to the home situation.
When will you qualify for reimbursement?
You will qualify for reimbursement for geriatric rehabilitation care if:
- you are admitted (a stay is the case) when care starts.
- the care is provided within one week of your hospitalisation in connection with specialist medical care and the admission to the hospital was not preceded by a stay at a nursing home; this does not apply if you suffer from an acute condition causing acute mobility disorders or impaired self-reliance and you received specialist medical care for that acute disorder prior to the geriatric rehabilitation care.
The duration of care does not exceed six months. You will require our written permission for the reimbursement of geriatric rehabilitation care for a period of more than six months. Request permission before the period of six months has expired.
For geriatric rehabilitation care, you need a referral from a medical specialist or a specialist geriatrics doctor.
Reimbursement under public healthcare insurance
Under the HollandZorg public healthcare insurance, you qualify for the reimbursement of geriatric rehabilitation care:
|Public Healthcare Insurance||Reimbursement|
|HollandZorg public healthcare insurance||100% for contracted care|
Maximum rates for non-contracted care
If you decide to use a care provider with which we have not made any agreements for geriatric rehabilitation care, we will apply a maximum reimbursement. In this situation, the rates in the Rate List for Non-contracted Care (under medical specialist care) will apply. If the rates charged by the non-contracted care provider are higher than our maximum rates, the difference will be for your account.

There is no statutory personal contribution for geriatric rehabilitation care.

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.
