Changes supplemental insurance
Dental care for insured persons under 18
Insured persons under the age of 18 will receive compensation for orthodontic care under the orthodontic care provision. Beginning on 1 January 2018, orthodontic care will no longer be reimbursed under the dental care for under 18.
This change concerns all our supplementary insurances, Except the AV-Gemak, AV-Prima and AV-Basis.
Maximum remuneration for orthodontic care under 18 lowered for AV-Top and AV-GeZZin policies
For treatment beginning in 2018, under the AV-GeZZin policy, a maximum of € 1,750.00 will be reimbursed of orthodontic care costs; for the AV-Top policy this is € 1,500.00. This is € 250.00 less than in 2017. This reduction does not apply to insured persons who were already receiving orthodontic care remuneration in 2017.
Changes regarding X-ray diagnostics and oral hygienist treatment
In 2018, under the AV-Totaal policy, the costs for treatment by an oral hygienist and of X-rays will be reimbursed for 85% up to the maximum amount per calendar year. For the other supplemental insurance policies listed here, reimbursement will be for 75% up to the maximum amount per calendar year. Previously this was 100% up to the maximum amount. The restrictions regarding remuneration of a maximum of 30 minutes for oral hygienist treatment and a maximum remuneration of € 35.00 for X-rays will lapse in 2018 for the supplemental insurance policies listed here.
If you start electrical epilation treatment in 2018 for the first time, the AV-Totaal and AV-Cum Laude policies will provide a maximum remuneration of € 800.00 for the entire term of insurance. In 2017 this was € 1,500.00. For the other supplemental insurance policies listed here, a maximum of € 600.00 of your costs will be reimbursed. In 2017 this was € 1,100.00.
