The condition that the guest staying overnight must be a family member of the patient, no longer applies. The patient claims the accommodation costs for the guest.
The condition that carer relief must last at least 3 consecutive days no longer applies. In 2022, carer relief can be claimed on a day-by-day basis. Carer relief will be reimbursed for the carer. Also, the carer will be reimbursed for a maximum of 7 hours for an external informal care broker. This is a one-off reimbursement.
Online health programmes
The reimbursement for online health programmes is being extended. You can now also use your allowance for the online self-help programmes 'Piekeren' (worrying) and Stressles (stress lessons) once per year.
