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:

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.

Please note:

The information on this page is a brief outline of the reimbursements. No rights can be derived from this page. You can only derive rights from our insurance conditions 2024.

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 for 2024. 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.
