As a foreigner living in Bruges, will I have access to public healthcare? What is it like?

Answer this Question

We asked expats in Bruges if they have access to public healthcare in Bruges. And, if they do have access, what is it like. They wrote...

"As a foreigner living in Bruges, you will have access to public healthcare, provided you have registered with the local authorities and have valid health insurance. The Belgian healthcare system is known for its high-quality care, well-equipped facilities, and well-trained medical professionals. Public healthcare in Belgium is funded through social security contributions, and both public and private healthcare providers are available. You will need to choose a primary care physician, who will be your first point of contact for any medical concerns and will refer you to specialists if necessary. Emergency care is available to everyone, regardless of their insurance status. Overall, you can expect a high standard of healthcare while living in Bruges," explained one expat living in Bruges, Belgium.
