Sterilisation is an intervention that renders someone infertile. Both men and women can be sterilised.


By virtue of the supplementary Top insurance, you are entitled to reimbursement of sterilisation:
Public Healthcare Insurance Reimbursement
HollandZorg public healthcare insurance none
Supplementary Insurance Reimbursement
Start none
Extra none
Plus none
Top 100% in the case of contracted care.
Non-contracted care: a maximum of € 500 for the entire treatment.
No Risk I
No Risk II none

Maximum rates non-contracted providers

If you are planning on going to a care provider with whom we have not concluded an agreement for sterilisation, the rates of the rate list for non-contracted care apply. If the rates of the non-contracted care provider are higher than our maximum rates, the difference will be for your expense.

No statutory personal contribution

Sterilisation is not subject to a statutory personal contribution.

No excess

The costs for reimbursements by virtue of the supplementary insurance do not count towards your excess.

Who can you go to?

For sterilisation, you can go to a (contracted) hospital and a contracted independent treatment center. Contracted care is care provided by a hospital or independent treatment center with which we have made arrangements especially for the performance of sterilisations. This does not include hospitals with which we have made general agreements for specialist medical care. General practitioners with whom we have made arrangements especially for the performance of sterilisations, are also permitted to provide the care. This does not include general practitioners with whom we have made general agreements.

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.
