Sign up and referral
Are you a student at Erasmus University Rotterdam or the Faculty of Humanities of the University of Amsterdam, do you have Dutch insurance, and have you been advised by Siggie for Students or the student psychologists to register for our team? You can report to your doctor for a referral. The GP can then refer via the regular route for clients over the age of 18, stating “Team Young Adults”. Curious about how the compensation works and what costs you incur yourself? You can find more information here.
Do you have foreign insurance? You can then sign up for a self-payment process. You pay per session and depending on the insurance you have abroad, you can submit these invoices there. Always contact your foreign insurance company to find out what options they offer for reimbursement.
