The client will need to check with his/her personal health insurance before the treatment offered by Yuan Qi Acupuncture and Health Center, if there is any kind of reimbursement possible for the sessions. The client will need to submit the invoice themselves to the health insurer and be responsible for the procedures.
According to the Quality, Complaints and Disputes Healthcare Act (Wkkgz), in case of a complaint, the complainant is advised to firstly turn towards the therapist in question. The complaint will be discussed in a personal interview and an attempt will be made to come to a fair solution. In case of impossibility to find a fair solution, the complainant can address the complaint by writing to one of the national operating complaints committees or directly to the professional association of the therapist. The complaints committee will then mediate the situation, make an investigation if judged necessary, and give a final recommendation.
Treatment and consultation:
The therapist is required to act in accordance with the professional code. The therapist undertakes to provide information regarding the treatment to the client at all stages of the consultation. The therapist may not perform certain treatments without the client's consent. The therapist undertakes, if his treatment is not suitable and/or sufficient, to refer the client correctly to a fellow therapist or doctor. The client is willing to follow the advice given by the therapist and, if he deems it necessary, to visit a fellow therapist or doctor.
The method of treatment is explained before acting on the client. This will indicate which actions will be carried out. If there are objections to the actions, the client must indicate this immediately. If, for example, there is an objection to certain actions and/or forms of treatment, the client must make this known at the first appointment, so that the treating therapist can decide what is the best for the customer. If a client objects to being treated by a therapist of the opposite sex, this must also be indicated before the first consultation.
The treatment can be terminated at any time by mutual consent. If the client no longer appreciates the continuation of the agreement or considers it necessary, he/she can terminate it unilaterally.
If the client decides to terminate the agreement or treatment prematurely, and against the advice of the therapist, the client accepts full responsibilities of any possible outcome, and consciously make this decision at their own risk.

Yuan Qi Acupuncture and Health Center keeps a record of medical and administrative data in order to carry out the treatment as best as possible. This is also a legal obligation imposed by the Medical Treatment Contracts Act (WGBO). The clients file contains notes about his/her health status, and information about the examinations and treatments performed. The client undertakes to provide the therapist with relevant information through the intake and anamnesis form. Only data that is necessary for the treatment are recorded. Relevant changes will always be recorded.
Yuan Qi Acupuncture and Health Center carefully handles these data and complies with the legal and applicable rules. Discussed topics remain confidential and will not be discussed with third parties (with the exception of the data for which the client has stated that he/she does not object to the use for statistical or treatment related purposes). The client is entitled to inspect the personal file and can request a copy. The treating therapist has a legal confidentiality obligation (professional secrecy).
The data from a client's file can also be used for the following purposes:
To inform other health care providers, for example, when the therapy is complete or when referring to another practitioner. This only happens with the client's explicit permission.
For anonymized use during peer evaluation or review.
A small part of the data are used by the accountant and bookkeeper for financial procedure and proper administration of the company.
Yuan Qi Acupuncture and Health Center ensure that unauthorized persons do not have access to the client's data, and handles the personal and medical data confidentially.
Privacy on the invoice:
The invoice provided to the client contains the information requested by the health insurer, so that the client can declare this bill to his/her health insurer, and request eventual reimbursement. The following information is eventually provided: client full name, address and place of residence, customer number, health care insurance information, date of birth, date of treatment, consultation code and references (24101 Chinese kruidengeneeskunde / 24102 Shiatsu / 24103 Overige Oosterse geneeswijzen / 24104 Acupunctuur / 24105 Tuina).
Because in the practice there are always several clients present at the same time, house rules have been drawn up to prevent accidents, incidents or confusion. In addition, a number of guidelines have been drawn up for the handling and treatment of clients, according to which the practice works. Both with the aim to create and keep a safe and pleasant environment for clients, visitors and employees.
Clients must behave in accordance with generally accepted norms and values. The practice reserves the right to remove people with offensive behavior within the building. Since the practice also deals with less able-bodied clients, it is praiseworthy that, in the absence of seating, these people will be given a seat as a priority.
If a client leaves a coat or other belongings on the coat rack or in the waiting room, they need to pay attention to valuables that are present in it, and are fully responsible for their personal effects. The practice is not responsible for theft of property in the building or outside area (car, bicycle). If a client park his/her bicycle or car, they need to do this in such a way that everyone can continue their path undisturbed.
If a client uses the reading material or a children play with toys while waiting, they will need to return the material belonging to the practice before leaving the waiting room. In the event of an emergency, customers must follow the instructions of staff members or of the competent authority (fire brigade, police).
The therapist, and possible supervisors, must behave respectfully towards the clients and omit informality, which is not desired. In case of a disagreement, another therapist will be advised in consultation with the client and therapist, or the treatment will be terminated.
