For adults: neuroCare Nederland carries out treatments in the Basis GGZ (BGGZ) and Specialist GGZ (SGGZ). BGGZ is intended for short-term and less complex problems, SGGZ for more complex problems where longer-term and more specialised care is required.
Neurofeedback treatments fall under SGGZ problems. If there is an indication for neurofeedback treatment, this always falls apart into a psychotherapy part and a neurofeedback part. The psychotherapy part is part of ‘reimbursable care’ and can be submitted to your health insurer. The neurofeedback part concerns ‘non-reimbursable care’ and is at your own expense. If you do not have a referral, you can come to treatment but the entire process (diagnostics, psychotherapy and possibly neurofeedback) is at your own expense.
For children: For children under the age of 18, any reimbursement of the care from 2015 onwards will be the responsibility of your municipality. Ask your municipality whether the basic mental health care (GGZ) is eligible for reimbursement. It is possible that the care falls within the scope of a PGB.
