Medical - Medical (general) / medical term
|Dutch term or phrase: WTG = Wet tarieven gezondheidszorg|
|This is a question for someone who may be familiar with medical receipts. |
There is a column marked 'W', which then can be filled in with either J or N (Ja/Nee). In this case it has 'N' in the column. What is this referring to? Is it important to the patient's insurer?
|Health Care Charges Act|
Eurodic gives 'Health Care Charges Act' as the translation. I would tend to think that any items on the receipt that are marked 'N' are not subject to the WTG, i.e. the charge is unregulated.
It is likely to be important to the insurer, because the WTG charges may include a portion which has to be returned to government. Or because benefits payable in respect of non-WTG items may be capped or otherwise restricted.
