You can only charge for perinatal physiotherapy if it was prescribed in preparation for a birth or in the context of postnatal rehabilitation.
The treatment of pregnant women or women who have recently given birth for other conditions , prescribed outside this specific framework, must be charged as current treatment , treatment of serious condition , or treatment F-acute or F-chronic.
The benefits in kind are stated in art. 7, §1, 4° of the nomenclature; the application rules in art. 7, §13.
No application or notification is required for perinatal physiotherapy.
Maximum number and nomenclature
You can charge for a maximum of nine perinatal sessions per pregnancy (in addition to any sessions during a hospital admission).
If a first current pathology follows the perinatal treatment in the same calendar year, you do not need to submit an application for additional current sessions.
There is a fixed personal share for physiotherapy services. More information can be found on the RIZIV website .
