Below is a link that will take you to the maximum rates charged in 2022 – 2023 for exams performed by Diagnostiek voor U. The listed rate is an indication of the maximum rate. The rate for your exam may therefore be lower than the listed rate. The actual rate is determined by the agreements made between your health insurance provider and Diagnostiek voor U. If you have any questions about this, please contact your health insurance provider.
Laboratory research rates
Please keep in mind that for laboratory research, we will charge the costs of the research itself as well as the order rate. The order rate is a fee for the costs of collecting and processing medical material (e.g. blood, urine or stool). If the code on the invoice/settlement for your health insurance provider lists multiple tests, this means that a package of tests was performed.
Pathological research is divided into cytological research (cells), such as cervix cytology medical indication (cervical smear), and histological research (tissues). What rate(s) is/are charged depends on the type of research, the research question, the amount of tissue submitted for research and the collection method used. Furthermore, additional molecular diagnostics may be required. The costs of pathological research are charged to the patient's health insurance provider and will be billed as part of the patient's deductible. The (indicative) rate differs per health insurance provider and depends on the agreements made with Diagnostiek voor U.
Certain blood tests (e.g. a potassium blood test) require a dilution test to be performed. A dilution test is used to check for the presence of interfering substances in the blood, which can affect the reliability of the test result. The resulting costs will be billed by your general practitioner a maximum of six times per order.
Depending on the outcome of the laboratory research, further research may be required in some cases. Costs will be charged for this. Depending on the required number of tests, the analysis rate (the laboratory rate) will be charged multiple times.
Reimbursement by health insurance provider
Diagnostic exams that are covered by your health insurance are reimbursed in full by your health insurance provider. Keep in mind that your deductible will be deducted from the reimbursement you receive from your health insurance provider.
The mandatory deductible will not change in 2023
The mandatory deductible is set by the government. This is the initial sum that you must pay out of pocket for health care that is covered by your basic health insurance. The mandatory deductible for your health insurance in 2023 will be €385 (the same as in 2022).
Contracted health insurance providers 2023
Diagnostiek voor U has signed contracts with all health insurance providers for 2023. This means that you can always use Diagnostiek voor U for diagnostic research, regardless of who your health insurance provider is.
