At Viefggz we diagnose, treat, guide and coach adults aged 18 and over with psychological problems. As briefly as possible and for as long as necessary.
The aim of the consultations is to improve the overall quality of your health and your quality of life by, in addition to the treatment of your psychological symptoms, placing special emphasis on your ability to continue to function well (both mentally and physically) in everyday life and to better manage your symptoms. In doing so, you retain control over your own life.
Mission and Vision
To be the first nurse-led clinic in the Netherlands to offer accessible, high-quality and innovative care to a client population that, in the current market, often has to wait months on a waiting list before diagnostics or treatment can start and is regularly found to be too complex.
We at Viefggz do not believe in months of waiting lists and partitions, but in an efficient, well-considered, well-funded treatment approach with balls, in which we do not shy away from complex care issues, taking into account the limits of our own expertise. The client and his or her request for help are always central, whereby the treatment can be as protocol-based and short as possible, but also as long and intensive as necessary.
Because we are able to offer psychological, nursing and pharamacological treatment with accompanying monitoring and somatic screenings, and because we are well versed in complex rehabilitation issues and also offer specialist medical care, we can move flexibly with the client and there are no unnecessary divisions that could slow things down, and we can offer more cost-effective care. We have the ability to scale up and down care quickly when needed and, as people, we have the skill to quickly build a treatment relationship based on mutual trust, openness and respect.
From focus on illness to focus on health.
We are a small institution, run by two nurse specialists and a psychiatrist.
After registration, during the first contact we will map out your needs and the most appropriate treatment. As much as possible, you will have contact with one regular practitioner, but within the practice we have the possibility to consult with colleagues about the treatment if necessary.
The treatment conversations can be supportive and structuring in nature, as well as behavioural, whereby we also make use of various forms of therapy, such as CBT, PST, EMDR, ACT, motivational interviewing and lifestyle advice. The introduction or follow-up of medication can also be part of the treatment, with accompanying somatic guidance.
In addition to the regular face-to-face treatment contacts, digital care is also offered in the form of E-health and the possibility of video calling.
We work in accordance with the requirements of the national GGZ quality statute and the national GGZ guidelines and care standards.
You can come to us for treatment, guidance or coaching for:
- Depressive complaints
- Anxiety complaints
- Complaints after experiencing a traumatic event
- Problems with mourning
- Complaints when you get stuck in your job
- In case of suspected ADHD or problems arising from ADHD
- Problems stemming from an autism spectrum disorder
- Physical complaints in which psychological aspects also play a role (such as pain or fatigue, fibromyalgia, burnout)
- Tailor-made medication advice (starting and following up antidepressants or antipsychotics) or follow-up and physical/lab checks if you are already taking these medications or a mood stabiliser)
- Aftercare if you have already completed a specialist course
Unfortunately, we cannot treat you if you have a primary personality disorder, primary addiction problems, psychotic disorders, active suicidality and if you have no fixed place of residence.
Our practice is insufficiently equipped to adequately treat crisis-sensitive problems. Therefore, we cannot treat people whose psychological problems often lead them into crises.
You always need a referral from your GP for treatment. Your GP must indicate on your referral letter why this care is needed.
During the first intake interview, together we will map out your symptoms and request for help. In this way, we can assess whether the therapist has the right expertise to treat your complaints. It is also possible that we advise you to seek help elsewhere. This depends on how busy the practice is (waiting times) and the nature of the problem.
It is also important to bring valid proof of identity to the first consultation.
You can register via the link below. Upon receipt, we will contact you by e-mail within a week.
In order to qualify for treatment that is covered by your basic insurance, you must have a referral letter from your GP in which the GP describes the problem or suspicion of a diagnosis.
We use the legally determined rates, section III mono-disciplinary, as determined by the Dutch Health Care Authority. More information can be found at: Terms%20of%20payment%20Viefggz%20-%20ENG%20(2).pdf or at: https://zorgprestatiemodel.nza.nl/
Because we at Viefggz want to offer the quality of care we think is necessary, with sufficient time and personal attention to determine together with you what you need at any given time, in which we do not want to be limited by agreements, we have chosen not to enter into contracts with health insurance companies for the time being.
On 1 January 2022, the care performance model was introduced throughout the Netherlands. This means that the invoice for the treatment will be sent to you every month. You are then responsible for submitting this invoice to your health insurer. We follow the principle of "planning = realisation". This means that you can assume that we actually do what has been planned.
Our invoice then states the number of consultations, the type of consultations and who carried them out. The other time your practitioner spends on the treatment, such as reporting, telephone calls, consultation, is part of such a consultation. This makes the bill for such a consultation high.
The reimbursement you will receive for the treatment depends on the type of policy you have. Not all health care policies are the same and the reimbursements can vary considerably. It is therefore important to check in advance what care policy you have.
With a restitution policy, you will usually receive the highest reimbursement, but it is also important to read the conditions carefully. If it says: "We reimburse 100% of the NZA-tarif", then the health insurance reimburses all costs, after deduction of the excess. However, if it states: "We reimburse 100% of the average contracted rate", the health insurance company will apply a lower rate and you will still not be reimbursed for part of the costs, which means that, in addition to the excess, you will also have to pay a personal contribution for the care costs incurred.
With a natura policy, you will receive a lower reimbursement. The reimbursements differ per health care insurance and are usually between 50-80% with a natura policy. In your case, this means that you will have to pay part of the bill yourself.
Please note that regardless of which health insurance policy or policy you have, a statutory excess always applies. For 2022 this has been set at a minimum of €385.
A few health insurers will only reimburse treatment by a non-contracted care provider if you request permission in advance!
We therefore advise you, if you are considering treatment at Viefggz, to contact your health insurer first and ask the following questions:
- "I am considering treatment at Viefggz. This is a GGZ institution that offers non-contracted care".
- "What percentage do you reimburse for my treatment at Viefggz"?
- "Do I have to ask for permission for my treatment in advance"?
- "Are there any additional requirements or conditions, such as a maximum number of sessions"?
- "May I receive the information in writing and make a note of who I have spoken to"?
If you are unable to attend an appointment, please cancel by telephone or email at least 24 hours in advance. In case of late cancellation or no-show, we will charge a fee of €50 which is not covered by the insurance.
