The services of Bloedwaardentest.nl are at your own expense. You need to check if preventive testing is covered by your supplementary insurance. If you have your blood tested by your doctor, it will be deducted from your own risk, so you will also have to pay yourself, but with Bloedwaardentest.nl you can decide what you want to have tested. Many doctors do not allow more extensive testing, because the health insurance company does not approve it (too expensive). But what about taking matters into your own hands for the most important thing you own? Your health!
In the Netherlands, preventive testing is not routinely reimbursed by the basic insurance, provided it is a population study.

Reimbursements supplementary insurance
The general practitioner may not perform the examination at your request without a medical necessity. Moreover, the blood tests performed by the laboratory will be charged to your deductible. In 2015, this is at least € 375, but sometimes € 850. So you often end up paying for the tests yourself.
Examinations via the family doctor also require more actions. Making an appointment by phone, going to the doctor, asking for the tests you would like to do and hoping he agrees, going to the blood collection point, calling about a week later for the results or going to the doctor again for the results. With Blood Values Test this is limited to the visit to the blood collection point and you often have the results available by e-mail within 48 hours, with a clear explanation.
Your results do not go to anyone else; they do not go to your family doctor either. We only work with certified Dutch laboratories, which also work for family doctors. The results are coordinated in the Netherlands, so if you have deviating test results you can easily print them out and discuss them with a doctor later if necessary. It is also possible for a clinical chemist, at your request, to consult with your family doctor about your results.
Blood test is meant for preventive research; if you really have complaints, please see your family doctor.
