The Dutch system for medical billing can be different to that of other countries. Depending on your insurance, and what policy you have, there are many variables that can affect whether we bill you or your insurance company directly, whether your insurance covers the full or only partial costs, whether you require a referral letter from your GP to see a specialist, etc. To find out more about Dutch insurance and how the Dutch healthcare system works, follow this link.

To find out more about our billing procedure, please select which department the invoice relates to:

Do you have Dutch insurance and want to see a medical specialist? If you visit one of our medical specialists with a referral from your GP you will only have to pay your deductible (eigen risico), the IHCH will cover your personal contribution! Find out more under Polyclinic Billing. Please note that the IHCH is offering this in the context of catch-up care after COVID and it is temporary. 

Depending on your Dutch insurance policy, only a certain percentage of the cost of visiting a medical specialist (providing you have a referral from your GP Family doctor) will be paid by your insurance. Therefore you would normally have to pay your own contribution in addition to what the insurance covers. In 2022, the IHCH will cover your personal contribution! Note that this is different to your deductible (eigen risico). You will still need to pay your excess deductible.

Please note that a telephone consultation will be charged the same as a physical consultation (also see NZa rules during corona).

Annual registration fee

Please be aware that an annual registration fee, renewable each year, may apply. The registration fee or inschrijftarief is common in The Netherlands to cover the regular running costs associated with operating a medical practice. The fee is per registered family member (registered for GP / all medical services) and is usually reimbursed by insurance companies.
