“Older is willing to pay more for greater choice in care’
Elderly people want best what pay more for their zorgpremie as that they have the freedom gives the health care provider to choose. That according to a poll of the ANBO, promoting the interests of seniors, including nearly nine hundred members.
In the Saturday published research is that three quarters of the respondents to the freedom of choice for a health care provider prefer a lower maandpremie for the care.
Furthermore, 74 percent would prefer help from a paid caregiver than from family or friends. Two years ago, this number was 66 percent.
“We have seen for years that the citizen would like to take matters into their own hands,” said ANBO director Liane den Haan. “That is good news, although we are after two full years Wmo also know that good guidance when care and support is very important.”
