Between March 1, 2019, and December 1, 2021, a Personal Contribution for Tecfidera was required. This Personal Contribution had a maximum of €250,- per patient per year.
The manufacturer didn’t want treatment with Tecfidera to come with additional costs for patients. They therefore repaid the Personal Contribution to patients through a ‘TerugBetaalRegeling’ (repayment scheme), facilitated by TBR Nederland.
As of December 1, 2021, the Personal Contribution for Tecfidera will be ended. As of that day, health insurers will once again fully reimburse the medicine, although the deductible excess does apply (currently set at €385,- per year). However, a Personal Contribution is no longer required.
The TerugBetaalRegeling (repayment scheme) will therefore be ended. Declarations can be submitted until September 1, 2022, to ensure that everyone has sufficient time to submit a declaration for Personal Contributions made in 2021.
Personal contributions that are demonstrably charged to the patient by the health insurer for Tecfidera® will be fully reimbursed from 1 April 2019. The patient can claim this at TBR Nederland. This concerns claims that were obtained in pharmacies from 1 March 2019. Please note: claims must be submitted to TBR Nederland within 3 months after receipt of the bill from the health insurer. You can only claim from TBR Nederland after you have received the bill from the health insurer. To submit your claim digitally to TBR Nederland, you need the monthly claim overview from the health insurer.
