· E-health interventions

What we can’t offer:

Treatment of severe addiction problems, acute psychosis, severe eating disorders or neurocognitive disorders. These problems are outside our area of expertise and the Entree team of GGzE can help you further with finding the right department or organisation.

We work in a multidisciplinary team that consists of psychologists, psychotherapists and a psychiatrist.

Referral to the expat poli:

Clients need a referral from their GP. All referrals for the Expat Poli are first screened by the Entree Team and the screened referrals are matched by the BIG-registered psychologists.

After the screening clients will follow a welcome module on Minddistrict, the online platform where we introduce ourselves and explain a bit more about the expat poli. Here we will ask clients to fill in an application questionnaire that we use for the intake.

You will receive an invitation form entreeteam for your intake with your psychologist.

Costs of treatment

It is a legal obligation for everyone who is registered as living in the Netherlands to be insured for healthcare through a Dutch health insurance company (within four months of entering the Netherlands). The costs are then paid by your health insurance. Please note that you are obliged to pay your own “eigen risico”. The amount of these costs depend on you insurance conditions.

Expatriates working for certain international organizations and embassies or those with employment that qualifies due to social security amounts being paid in another country should contact their insurance company and the finances department of GGzE.

The process for patients with a non-Dutch insurance or student insurance, will be outlined by the finances department of GGzE.
