Fees, Payment and Insurance
This page provides you with information about treatment fees, how you can pay them, and how you can have your health insurance provider reimburse you.
The fee for an initial consultation is €250 and includes all the examinations required to thoroughly assess and diagnose your situation and to discuss your options for treatment and draft a treatment plan with you. The initial consultation does not obligate you to further treatment in any way.
The fee for a corneal transplantation is € 9,875. This fee also includes the donor tissue and all your postoperative checkups for the first year after your surgery. For further postoperative checkups, we charge €175 per consultation.
The fee for UV crosslinking to treat keratoconus is € 1,250, which also includes all your postoperative checkups for the first month after surgery.
After our medical team has thoroughly examined you and created a tailored treatment plan for you, we will give you a binding price for your entire treatment plan. You can then decide whether you want to proceed.
You pay the fee for your treatment directly to the clinic. You can then submit the invoice to your health insurance provider for reimbursement.
You can pay for a consultation or checkup at the clinic using your bank card, credit card (MasterCard and VISA), or cash.
Payment for surgical procedures is due at least two weeks before your surgery. You can pay for these by bank transfer.
For each payment, we will provide you with an invoice you can submit to your health insurance provider for reimbursement.
Reimbursement by Your Health Insurance Provider:
In the vast majority of cases, your health insurance provider will reimburse all or part of your treatment for corneal disease. The details vary from one provider to another and from country to country.
We recommend you contact your health insurance provider in advance to find out exactly what they will cover. Be sure to explain the necessity of surgery abroad. If you live in the European Union, you can also contact your country’s ministry of foreign affairs and ask for more information about the EU directive for cross-border medical care*, and how your country has incorporated this directive into its own legislation.
(* EU directive 2011/24 states that EU citizens are entitled to receive reimbursement for medical care received in another EU member state. This means your health insurance provider must reimburse you the same amount for your corneal surgery in the Netherlands using the latest, most advanced techniques as they would for surgery in your own country, which often uses older, more conservative techniques.)
