Letter from CZ (health insurance company) in response to the question whether it is possible to reimburse the thermography.


Dear Mrs. Verhagen,

Following your letter dated. July 25 I can tell you the following.

The breast screening method by thermography is not part of the specialist medical care that is included in the basic package and is therefore not eligible for reimbursement under the health insurance law.

For reasons of efficiency, CZ maintains regular screening through the national population screening and sees no further arguments to reimburse this preventive screening (in whole or in part) from the basic health insurance package or from supplementary insurance.

Therefore we do not use your invitation to discuss this further. Trusting to have informed you sufficiently,

With best regards,

M.J.F. Pijnenburg Manager Medical Specialist Care
