Forte MHC | Students Outpatient Clinic


Common problems
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD); Anxiety Disorders; Autistic Spectrum Disorder; Depression; Personality Disorders; Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Forte MHC wants to support you as a student to find the cause and offer possibilities for treatment. Our team of psychiatrists and psychologists are also more than willing to have contact with your academic advisor or coordinator – if you want them to.
Which treatment suits you, in your situation? You can discuss it together with the psychiatrist or psychologist

In your intake you’ll be introduced to the respectful environment of Forte MHC.
The intake serves a dual purpose. The primary importance is that you can tell your story. In addition, the intake is ideally suited to gather all the information necessary to get a clear picture of your questions and problems. Usually one intake is sufficient but sometimes two intakes are required to get a clear picture. Based on the acquired information, the main practitioner will devise a treatment plan. To prepare a treatment plan, sometimes additional information is required through, for example, a psychological or psychiatric evaluation. If this is the case, this will always be discussed with you first. Which treatment suits you, in your situation? You’ll look at possibilities together, to change your outlook on life through therapeutic counseling, psychotherapy or another treatment that is possible and suits you well.

Reimbursement when staying in the Netherlands temporarily
If you are staying in the Netherlands on a temporary basis (for example as a student) and you are a citizen of an EU- or EEA-country or Switzerland and you have a health insurance in your home country, then Forte GGZ is happy to help you out. If you meet all three conditions, you can request a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) at your home country health insurance company. This card will cover the treatment you get at Forte GGZ*.
When you apply for treatment at Forte GGZ, we will need a copy of your EHIC and a referral letter from your General Practitioner. After we have received these, we can start the treatment. Together with the invoice we will send a copy of your card to the Dutch handler of EHIC-invoices.

Reimbursement when staying in the Netherlands permanently
If you are staying in the Netherlands permanently as a resident, or if you have a job in the Netherlands, you are obliged to have basic health insurance. This is required by the Dutch general health insurance law (Zvw). This insurance covers the costs of you treatment at Forte GGZ, except for your annual 'mandatory policy excess' (eigen risico)*. In addition to an application form we will always need a referral letter from a General Practitioner (this is a condition for reimbursement of your treatment). In most cases we are able to send the invoice directly to your insurance company.

More information
For more information about the EHIC and how to get it, you can go to the website of the European Commission. If you have any questions on whether you need a Dutch basic health insurance, or about the Dutch health system in general, you can look at Zorgverzekeringslijn or at Studenten-verzekeringen.
