Contacting me

My practice is located on the Nieuwelaan 10 in Limmen (NH). You can reach me by telephone on +31 72 737 0081 and gsm +31 6 296 22 566 or by email eddie@lightjoy.nl (my preferred option).  I do my best to respond within 24 hours.  I work mostly Mondays through Fridays in the mornings between 9 am and 1 pm.

Fees

My fee is €90 per hourly session. Following the session you will receive an invoice by email which should be paid to my account (payment details/methods on invoice) within 14 days of the invoice date.  This invoice can be submitted to your (Dutch) medical insurance company for reimbursement. For consultations (online, by telephone or in-person meeting) I charge €25 per quarter hour including taxes.  You will also be sent an invoice (not subject to reimbursement by insurance companies) by email following a consultation.

Reimbursement by medical insurance

The cost of your treatment sessions with me are generally reimbursed either partially or in whole by your Dutch Medical Insurance policy. Whether or not you can avail of this reimbursement is dependent on your particular Insurance policy. An overview of premiums, conditions and reimbursements can be found at Zorgwijzer.nl.

The VBAG (vbag.nl), the professional organisation to which I am affiliated, is recognised by almost all Dutch medical insurance companies. Which therapies/ treatments exactly are reimbursed depends on your insurance package. I advise you to always check with your medical insurance company which particular policies apply in this specific instance.

Missed Appointments and Cancellations

Appointments can be cancelled without charge up to 24 hours before the session. You can cancel by voicemail, e-mail or text.  Late cancellations and no-shows incur the full session fee.

Rights and Obligations

As a therapist I am obliged to act in accordance with the legal regulations. The rights and obligations of both the client and care provider are laid down in the Medical Treatment Contracts Act (WGBO) and the Quality, Complaints and Disputes Care Act (Wkkgz). This means that whatever we discuss is subject to the observance of the legal provisions relating to professional secrecy.  I may, in confidence, discuss our work together with a professional supervisor or professional peer

Contact with your GP and other care professionals

If you have any injuries or medical issues, then I recommend you be treated by a qualified physician.  I do not consider it advisable to stop any medical treatment you are undergoing; this also applies to prescription medicines. At your request, I can contact your health care provider for peer consultation about your condition.  I can also ask your permission for same when I consider that that might be beneficial to your treatment with me.

Should it be necessary for your treatment to exchange information with your General Practitioner or other health care professionals, then this will only be done at your request and/or with your written permission.
