Procedure for the reimbursement of costs for the use of an AED after resuscitation
The Minister of Health, Welfare and Sport has made a budget available to reimburse the costs of the use of an AED after resuscitation. This scheme is designed to lower the costs for the purchase, general provision and use of AEDs. This is very important because every AED deployment is focused on saving lives.
- The scheme is open to any non-Healthcare Market Regulation Act (WMG) care provider.
- The declaration can be made to the Regional Ambulance Service in the region in which the AED was deployed.
- Conditions for compensation are:
- The AED was used for the purpose of resuscitation.
- The claim concerns the cost of:
- Replacing the electrode pads
- Reading data from the AED or preparing the AED for use.
- The cost of the battery will only be reimbursed if it needs replacement due to having been used for resuscitation.
- The attached invoice is addressed to the claims applicant
- Regularly recurring costs are not eligible for reimbursement, including:
- Replacement of non-durable parts that are past their use-by-date;
- Periodic replacement of non-durable parts, such as the battery.
We will process your claim on receipt. The amount will be transferred to you within 30 days.
