Are you coming to Belgium on holiday?

If you come from another European Union country or from Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein or Switzerland, don’t forget to take your European health insurance card (EHIC). Your European card is issued by your insurance fund and must be valid for the length of your stay.

On the basis of the European card, you may obtain reimbursement of your medical costs in Belgium (according to Belgian rates and conditions).  In the event of hospitalisation, you only pay your share. In the event of outpatient treatment, you pay the total amount of the invoice. You then go to a mutual insurance fund in Belgium, which will reimburse the health care costs according to Belgian rates and conditions
