APPLY FOR COMPENSATION FOR PERSONAL ALARM (Valid in the NL only)

Do you know that you can qualify for a reimbursement?

To receive compensation for personal alarm, depends on your situation. Personal alarm is added in the basic insurance and you may qualify if there are medical reasons. The health insurance may reimburse certain costs. If there are social reasons (for example, if you do not feel safe at home and don’t have caretakers that you can alert in case of emergency), you can consult your municipality about the possibilities.

To receive the reimbursement based on medical reasons, you need a referral from your doctor. The referral needs to describe: your disease, living situation, medication, whether you fall sometimes and are in need of a personal alarm. Usually the health insurance regulates compensation for medical reasons and the municipality for social reasons. Each health insurer will assess it in a different way.

Not all municipalities reimburse personal alarm service.

You can apply for the personal alarm service through a registration form at your health insurance. If you click on the logo of your health insurer you will receive the correct application form. Go to the application forms available.
