Expats moving to Belgium can rest assured that they’ll be in safe hands when it comes to their medical needs. The country is home to one of the most reputable and reliable healthcare systems in Europe.
Unlike many other expat destinations, the division between the public and private healthcare sectors in Belgium is somewhat blurred. Fees are payable for both types of care and the system as a whole is funded by a combination of social security contributions and health insurance funds.
Anyone living and working in Belgium will have access to the healthcare system, provided they have carried out the compulsory registrations and have some form of state or private health insurance.
