Rehabilitation care

Rehabilitation is another word for efforts to achieve recovery after an accident, serious illness or medical procedure. A team of various experts will provide this care. They will do this under the guidance of a medical specialist.

Please note: different reimbursement regulations apply to geriatric rehabilitation care.


Under HollandZorg basic insurance, you are entitled to reimbursement for rehabilitation care.

Statutory personal contribution

You will not be subject to a statutory personal contribution for rehabilitation care.


Are you older than 18? The costs incurred for rehabilitation care will count towards your compulsory policy excess.

Who qualifies for reimbursement?

You will qualify for a reimbursement for rehabilitation care if you need the care to avoid, reduce or overcome a disability. The disability must be a result of disorders or restrictions in the locomotor apparatus or a disorder of the central nerve system that leads to restrictions in communication, intellect or behaviour.

Referral needed?

You will require a referral from a medical practitioner, a medical specialist, paediatrician, a sports doctor, intellectual disability physician, geriatrician, a clinical technologist or an occupational physician.

Who may provide this type of care?

Hospitals and rehabilitation centres may provide this type of care. The care must be provided under the final responsibility of a rehabilitation specialist (ultimately responsible). Use our Care finder to find a hospital or rehabilitation care near you.

In the event of rehabilitation care provided by a non-contracted care provider, you need our written authorisation before receiving the care. When applying for care you will need to send us a copy of a report from the attending physician with the medical diagnosis/diagnoses, a description of the current problem and the proposed treatment plan (care activities).

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.
