WHY CHOOSE US?
IMC is a unique, professional and easily accessible mental health centre where our staff is passionate about helping internationals find their way to a fulfilling life.
We believe every human being has a unique life context and an approach to his/her mental health needs to be tailored thereto.
As your mental health provider we take into account your context and life characteristics as an international person in order to enhance your quality of life.
Mental health questions and issues can be diverse and impactful.
Internationals have to adapt to a new culture, sometimes feeling isolated or misunderstood.
Day-to-day differences, such as customs and language, can have more impact than you might expect. Ordinary and unexpected life situations may prove challenging when faced in a different country, far away from family and friend support at home. The Covid-19 pandemic has shown it’s impact on many expatriates.
At IMC we understand these additional factors and incorporate then in our tailor-made treatments.
We are an international, multilingual team of Psychiatrists, Psychologists and Psychotherapists who offer state of the art treatments for your mental health challenges.
Mental health begins with people. Language, cultural resonance and empathy play a key role. We believe that clinicians need to have a mixture of clinical skills and human qualities so you can place your trust in them. We provide state-of-the-art and professional support for all mental health challenges for internationals living in the Netherlands. We only work with a carefully selected team of Psychiatrists, Psychologists and Psychotherapists, with high clinical expertise, experience and capacities who share our values. Apart from expertise our team exists of expatriates themselves who want to use their experience and skills to help you. Our staff is multilingual. We offer treatments in English, French, German and Spanish. All our staff and their diploma’s are fully recognized by the Dutch and European Union governments.

If you have Dutch health insurance coverage, a referral letter from your GP (family doctor) is mandatory for you to file successfully for reimbursement.
Your GP can refer you to us directly by sending us a written letter of referral. When we receive the referral letter, we will contact you to book your first appointment.
If you have the referral letter yourself, you can also send it to us via e-mail, post or upload it on our website through the Contact Form. We will contact you to book your first appointment.
If you are insured with a non-Dutch insurance, a referral letter is not required for reimbursement. You can just contact us through e-mail, or phone or fill out the Contact Form on our website. We will get back to you to book your first appointment.
Please fill in our online Contact Form and upload your referral letter if you have one.
Our secretary will contact you within two working days after receiving your Contact Form or E-mail. They will ask you some additional personal questions and they will make an appointment with you for an intake. This is the registration.

If you have your visit physically at the clinic, please bring with you on your first visit:

If you have your first visit online through teleconsultation, please send us a copy of the above via e-mail.

When you have a Dutch health insurance:
Treatments until 31december 2021 are not charged per session/hour, but in a diagnosis treatment combination (DBC). A DBC contains the whole course of treatment, from your first consultation up to the last contact. All expenses as per direct and indirect activities (e.g. writing a report or treatment plan) concerning your treatment will be accumulated in a specific code known as the DBC-code.
The price of a DBC is determined by the Dutch Healthcare Authority (NZa). The invoice of your treatment of 2021 will only be drawn up and sent to you at 31 December 2021. For the DBC rates 2021 please click here.
As diagnosis and treatment needs are not easily predictable, it is difficult to forecast the cost of your treatment. You are welcome to consult us for monitoring your treatment cost along the course of your treatment.
In order to qualify for reimbursement through your insurer, you need to send us a valid referral letter from you General Practitioner (Huisarts).
Further, there is always an annual ‘own risk’. For 2021 this is €385, -.
Dutch health insurance providers are obliged to reimburse patients for their annual basic medical health costs. The amount of reimbursement depends on your own insurance policy. Generally ‘restitutie’ policies cover 100% of the health care costs annually.
When you have a foreign health insurance:
Intake and treatments will be billed per session. Law determines the costs per treatment.
Some international insurance companies ask a treatment or therapy prescription by your psychiatrist before covering your health costs. In this case, we can submit the treatment prescription for you, with your permission to your insurer.
Please note that there might be an annual ceiling of coverage by your health insurance provider. The height of the ceiling depends on your own insurance policy.
In all cases we recommend you to consult your health insurance company regarding refunds of mental health treatments, as the amount of reimbursement depend on your own insurance policy. In all cases we will send the bill directly to you. After you have received and paid the invoice, you can file a health insurance claim to your insurer and request reimbursement for medical services that you have obtained at our center.
