WHAT OBSTEPTIC CARE IS INSURED?
In the Netherlands, you receive reimbursement for standard obstetric care from the basic health insurance. This includes pregnancy counseling and a number of ultrasounds, such as the 20-week ultrasound and the term ultrasound.
Our care is therefore fully reimbursed from the basic health insurance, so if you do not want anything extra, you will not receive an invoice.
If there are extra things you want, for example an extra ultrasound, these are usually not reimbursed by your health insurer. In that case we will ask you to pay immediately or we will send you an invoice later.
WHICH ECHOS ARE REFUNDED?
As standard, the basic health insurance reimburses the 10-week ultrasound (term ultrasound), the 13-week ultrasound and the 20-week ultrasound (SEO). We have everything in-house to make these ultrasounds for you.
If you need more ultrasounds on medical grounds, these will also be reimbursed by the insurer. However, there is a limit to the maximum number of medical ultrasounds that can be claimed from your health insurer. This has been determined by the various insurers. There are cases in which an ultrasound is therefore medically necessary and which we cannot claim for you from the health insurer. In that case you will receive an invoice from us.
Ultrasounds that you choose yourself are not reimbursed. Think, for example, of fun ultrasounds and the ultrasound for the combination test.
WHAT ELSE WILL BE REIMBURSED?
In principle, massages are not reimbursed, but in some cases can be reimbursed from additional health insurance.
Workshops, courses and yoga are in principle not reimbursed, but in some cases can be reimbursed from additional health insurance. Sometimes this falls under pregnancy classes or something like that.
It is a good idea to take a good look at your insurance to see if you may be eligible for reimbursements for a pregnancy course, first aid course or something similar.
