Remarks for our non-Dutch
Thank you for your efforts to contact EDT Maastricht. Unfortunately we have most of our documentation only available in Dutch, although we can also speak with you in English, German, French or Italian.
You can find an online registration form here.
Especially with respect to the latter, we are used to ask our clients' written consent in the first session. These rules are pretty regular in kind, but I do not want to demand from you any agreement with them without you having had prior opportunity to read them at your ease.
A first administrative requirement is the so called burgerservicenummer (BSN). You may have already obtained one from your municipality, or have met with other formal circumstances in which this was required.
With respect to costs:
If you are an EU/EER resident and enrolled in our country as a regular inhabitant, but not having a Dutch health care insurance, then it is possible to obtain a so called "S1" form (also known as "E106") and then contact one of our Dutch health insurers and have them represent your foreign insurance company within our health cost administration. It's not too complicated and worth the effort.
If you are a European student living only temporarily in our country, without a Dutch health care insurance, you will need a so called European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). The good news is that you, as an EHIC holder, are not liable to payment of the 'own risk' ('eigen risico'), the first few hundred euros of your health care costs in our country, as we Dutch are liable to. For final details on these matters you may contact health insurance company Zilveren Kruis: 033-4456870.
With respect to family members:
You may wish to have a look at our message for family members who are concerned about someone who receives therapy with us.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
