Physiomotion and health insurance

Physiomotion and reimbursement Health insurance 

From 2020, Physiomotion has no direct contracts with the insurance companies anymore. We have made this choice after 18 years working under insurance contracts and certification as a top plus practice and a HKZ certification. This enables us to keep on providing you with what we think is the best care, without being distracted anymore by a lot of paperwork, restrictions and obligations to third parties.  

As our client you will receive all of our time and attention, while we can fully focus on our field of specialty. Because this is why you come to us.

From 2020, we ask all clients to settle all costs directly with us after every treatment session, preferably by debit card (but if desired: cash is also possible). After this you will immediately receive a payment receipt by e-mail that you can submit to your insurance company. You will be reimbursed by them for the whole bill or for a part of the bill, depending on which type of contract you have agreed upon with your insurance company (please also below information about the difference between a “natura polis” or a “restitution polis”).   If you want to know the exact fee that you will receive from your insurance company you should contact them directly.

Choosing a health insurance policy

(Source: zoekopedia.nl) The last month of the year is full of festivities, but it is also the month in which you have to make the decision that you will switch to a new health insurer. All health insurers must announce their premiums in November, giving everyone ample time to switch. What should you pay attention to when switching and how do you not only get the best health insurance, but also the cheapest health insurance?

Until when can you switch?
There are a few exceptions, but for all Dutch people you want to transfer you have canceled your current health insurance policy no later than 31 December. As a rule, most people will also immediately have taken out a new health insurance policy. If you have not done this, you will have until 31 January of the new year to find a new health insurer. Your new health insurance will then take effect retroactively from 1 January. Show yourself on January 31 if you don't have a new insurance policy yet, you can get a fine.

With an 'Naturaverzekering', the health insurer pays the healthcare costs directly. But this also applies if you purchase care from a care provider who has a contract with the health insurer. So you have less choice in treatment providers. If you nevertheless choose a practitioner who does not have a contract with your health insurer, you must pay part of the invoice yourself. There are insurers that offer a budget policy. For example, with Zilveren Kruis you can opt for Basic Budget. You can only go to care with contracted care providers. Budget policies offer a very low premium, but no freedom of choice. This is especially beneficial for people who receive little care.

Refund insurance
Do you want a lot of freedom of choice and the certainty that you will receive all healthcare reimbursements? Then opt for reimbursement insurance. Just like with a kind insurance, the insurer will pay the healthcare costs with care providers with whom they have a contract. If you go to a practitioner with whom you do not have a contract, you will have to advance the bill yourself and declare the costs yourself. You will, however, receive full reimbursement of the costs.

The deductible
There is an excess on the basic insurance. Up to 2021 this is an amount of € 385. The deductible is the amount that you first have to pay yourself, before you are eligible for reimbursement from the basic insurance. Do you make little or no use of care? Then you can ask to voluntarily increase the excess. If you make comparisons between the different insurers, you will see that the maximum return on top of the standard deductible is € 500. This can be very interesting, because it gives you a substantial discount on the premium. If you have a lot of healthcare costs, then you should not do this
