Sterilisation is any of a number of medical methods of birth control that intentionally leave a person unable to reproduce. Both men and women can be sterilised.


Those with a supplementary Top insurance are entitled to reimbursement of sterilisation. If you choose a care provider with whom we do not have a contract, maximum reimbursements apply. Men (or persons with male sex assigned at birth) are entitled to a maximum reimbursement of € 300 for the entire treatment, whereas women (or persons with female sex assigned at birth) are entitled to a maximum of € 1.000 for the entire treatment. The reason for this? The treatment is generally less expensive for men and can be performed by a GP, whereas women will have to go to hospital or a specialist treatment centre. By distinguishing between the two sexes, HollandZorg is providing a realistic and suitable cover for all insured.

Statutory personal contribution

Sterilisation is not subject to a statutory personal contribution.


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

Who can provide this type of care?

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. This is a list of contracted care providers that can offer sterilisations.

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.

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.
