Health insurance reimburses Psychology consultations


Following the negotiations currently underway between the Ordem dos Psicólogos (OPP) and several institutions with a view to promote benefits for Members of the Order in a wide range of areas, the OPP is pleased to announce that, on the 20th of May, a landmark agreement for Psychology in Portugal was signed between the OPP and Normed, on the subject of Health Insurance.
This Protocol is an important milestone for Psychology in Portugal due to the fact that contrary to the trend in this country regarding subsidies for Psychological therapy sessions, this Agreement enables members of the Order and their respective families to make appointments for Psychological consultations without the need for any other prescription, there being no restriction to the number of consultations made. It is the first major step in promoting and recognising the importance of Psychological consultations in terms of financial reimbursements by an Insurance company.
With this agreement, members of the Order have three health insurance policy options, to be adapted to the specific needs of each member and which are extended to their immediate family, providing the latter is mentioned upon signing the contract.
