International staff must join a healthcare fund as soon as possible after arrival.

These funds reimburse the cost of medical care (either in full or in part depending on the type of services provided). https://www.riziv.fgov.be/nl/themas/kost-terugbetaling/verzekerbaarheid/Paginas/aansluiten-ziekenfonds.aspx

Complementary, our university provides a collective β€˜health care insurance' for employees and grant holders. This insurance, generally referred to as β€˜hospitalisation insurance’, covers the following three categories: 

  • Hospitalisation costs;
  • Costs related to the outpatient treatment of serious diseases; 
  • Ambulatory care (UZ Brussel and VUB services).

This insurance is free of charge for staff members. Optional (paying) affiliation of family members is possible.
