Specialist care at Polikliniek Prins Willem
Our specialists are available to all residents in The Hague and its surrounding areas and work together at the "Polikliniek Prins Willem"
We encourage you to visit our Centre and to make appointments by calling (070) 306 5111. For non-Dutch insured patients no referral letter is required. If you have Dutch Insurance, however, your GP should provide us with a referral letter for reimbursement purposes.
We offer an "open-door" policy at our clinic. This means that you may directly make appointments, without the need to be registered with our General Practitioners, however priority is given to IHCH patients. Waiting times are usually less than a week.
Frequently asked questions
Yes, even if you are not registered with a GP at the IHCH! Our registered patients do receive priority though. Please register 'To see policlinic specialists only' on our online registration form.
If you do not have a GP at all in The Netherlands, we will ask you to register with a GP at the IHCH to streamline your medical care.
If you are registered with a GP at our Centre, it is preferable to consult your GP first for medical advise and to reduce your waiting time. In the case of patients with Dutch insurance and some international insurances, it is a must to obtain a referral letter from your GP first. If not, it is quite likely that your insurance company will not reimburse your medical costs.
At present we offer:
- Dentistry (from February 2017)
- ENT specialist
- Internal medicine
It is now possible to book for all PoliClinic appointments directly
Tariffs of specialist services are regulated by the Ministry of Health and may be very different from what you are used to in your home country.
Prices are set by DBC (diagnosis-treatment-combination). For every diagnosis there is a different DBC, to which a package price is attached. Certain diagnoses may require more visits to the specialist. All of these visits are then included in the price. This price is based on an average treatment for the diagnosis the specialist has made. Therefore, the bill may seem either inexpensive or expensive to you.
Only at the end of the DBC (when the specialist closes your 'case'), will an invoice be generated and sent to either you or your insurance company, should we have a directly billing agreement in place with the company concerned.
Depending upon your personal circumstances, you may also be requested to pay us at the time of the consultation.
