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).

Complementary, our university provides a collective ‘health care insurance' for employees and grant holders. This insurance, generally referred to as ‘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.
