What does a diagnostic and treatment programme cost?

If we have a contract with your health insurer or if you have a 100% reimbursement policy, you do not pay any additional costs, except for your own outstanding deductible. If we do not have a contract with your health insurer, you will pay a “personal contribution” of €250 after the diagnosis day and treatment. You will also have to pay your health insurer your outstanding deductible.Personal contribution medication Medication has an important place in the treatment of ADHD. This medication will be prescribed by us and supplied by your pharmacist. Depending on the medication prescribed, a personal contribution might be necessary under the Health Insurance Act. This is capped at €250 by law. The personal contribution will be charged to you by your own insurer. This will not involve ADHDcentraal. You may have supplemental insurance for these costs. Inquire about this with your insurer. Some manufacturers have a refund scheme for the personal contribution. See the following links for more information: Refund scheme Tentin Refund scheme Elvanse

Can I also use your services if I do not want to be treated with medication?

In collaboration with you, we will look for a treatment that is in line with your needs and that provides the best possible results. Our years of experience have taught us that medication plays an important role in the treatment of ADHD. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can also be used. During the day of diagnosis, we are happy to explain how the medication works, what types of medication there are and offer you the opportunity to experience the effects of medication under supervision.

Can I be scheduled for a location further away with shorter waiting times?

We will schedule your appointment at the location closest to where you live. This is taking into account the possibility of follow-up appointments that may take place as part of the treatment. For information about the possibilities of a fully online treatment at a location further away, please contact Team Information and Planning at: info@adhdcentraal.nl

Can I be placed on a list for when places become available intermediate?

Occasionally places become available in the meantime, but unfortunately this is not enough to satisfy all the requests that we receive.

I already have a diagnosis, can I also come to you for treatment only?

If the diagnosis has already been made in the past, you can come to us as well. It is important to know that we do the diagnostics again and rely on our own observation. Our care and treatment are tailored to your personal situation and capabilities. To ensure this, we start with a day of diagnosis. After that, we will draw up a treatment plan in collaboration with you. If you have recently (<1 year ago) had your diagnosis made at another institution, please contact your health insurer to find out if they will reimburse you for a possible second diagnosis at ADHDcentraal.
