Diederik Schrijvershof and Leah Peeters are representing a large provider of forensic mental healthcare in an objection procedure before the Dutch Healthcare Authority (“NZa”) against the tariff decision for mental health and forensic care.
Maverick Advocaten helps healthcare providers on a daily basis to obtain cost-covering rates in the healthcare sector or to challenge inadequate turnover ceilings. Maverick has also successfully brough legal actions on behalf of healthcare providers in the procurement of, among other things, GP care, acute mental healthcare (see here and here), forensic care, youth care, SGLVG (Serious Behavioural Problems and Mild Intellectual Disability) care, long-term care (also on appeal) and care under the Social Support Act (see also here), and against excessive market power of health insurers.
