Health insurance coverage

Starting January 1, 2024, your eye examination with a referral letter from your general practitioner will be fully covered, with no deductible.

These services are included in the basic package of all health insurers. This initiative is a collaboration between Huisarts+punt, S.A.G, Zeker Zicht, and all health insurers in Amsterdam.

Through ZorgDomein => Medical specialist care => Ophthalmology => Huisartspluspunt => Optometry consultation (Zeker Zicht, Osdorp), general practitioners can refer patients with mild complex eye complaints to Zeker Zicht. We conduct a comprehensive eye examination and subsequently the optometrist sends a report via ZorgDomein to the general practitioner with our recommendations. This approach reduces the need for 70% of these patients to visit an ophthalmologist or another specialist.

Referral guidelines for primary and secondary care:

  • Symptoms such as dry, itchy, or irritated eyes, or intermittent blurry vision with periods of clear vision (symptoms consistent with dry eyes and/or blepharitis).
  • Patient’s desire for consultation with an ophthalmologist, even with good vision, for example, due to family history of macular degeneration or fear of other eye diseases.
  • Gradual vision loss.
  • Screening for glaucoma with family history and elevated eye pressure measured by the optician < 30 mmHg*.
  • Complex refractive error or challenging measurement from age 8.
  • Fundus photograph evaluation inconclusive for Diabetic Retinopathy.
  • Screening for Diabetic Retinopathy.
  • Eyelid problems.
