High-quality and affordable healthcare in Flanders

Healthcare in Belgium, and Flanders as a region, is funded through a state-run mandatory insurance scheme, with premiums automatically deduced from an individual’s salary. To join a national insurance fund, you need written confirmation from your employer that you work and live in Belgium.

The benefits of Flanders’ healthcare system speak for themselves:

  • Reimbursement of up to 75% of all healthcare costs.
  • Foreign nationals can choose between the national health insurance system and private health insurance.
  • Free choice of doctors, dentists, specialists, clinics and hospitals, in any location and without referrals. Speak to contacts and colleagues for recommendations, or find them online. Good to know as well: embassies keep lists of doctors who can work in your language, with most having a good command of English.
  • Pharmacy rotation makes it possible to obtain medication 24/7 in any given area.
