The therapy fund allows family physicians to refer their patients to a clinical psychologist in the case of medical indication.
The admission is financed through the family physician’s therapy fund.
The referral must contain the initial diagnosis, tests performed, medications prescribed, the reason for the referral, the desired service, and confirmation that the service will be paid for using the therapy fund.
The referral must be available to the patient when booking an appointment, either on paper or via encrypted e-mail.
Those who book an appointment to a clinical psychologist with a referral from a family physician must pay a co-payment of 80 euros for the first appointment and 60 euros for each subsequent visit.
The same conditions apply to cancellation as for other paid services.
