Are healthcare and health insurance expensive in Bruges?

Answer this Question

When we asked expats in Bruges if healthcare and health insurance are expensive in Bruges, they wrote...

"Healthcare and health insurance in Bruges, can be considered relatively affordable compared to other countries, particularly the United States. This is because Belgium operates under a mandatory, universal healthcare system, which ensures that all residents have access to quality healthcare services. The cost of healthcare is shared between the government, employers, and individuals through a combination of taxes and social security contributions. As a result, medical treatments, consultations, and hospital stays are generally more affordable for residents. However, some individuals may choose to purchase additional private health insurance to cover services not included in the public system, which can increase their overall healthcare expenses," said another expat in Bruges, Belgium.
