Can I receive compensation for my wheelchair?

Yes, you can receive compensation for your wheelchair. How much and the conditions for compensation are determined in the Netherlands by the Social Support Act (WMO) or the Personal Care Budget (PGB) that you receive from your health insurer.

If you need advice on requesting compensation and PGB´s, you can ask your occupational therapist and dealer to help you. It is important however that you submit the correct medical arguments. You can request examples of such arguments from our company. It would be advisable to request compensation for your wheelchair together with your dealer.
