By law, all employees and self-employed people must contribute to an insurance fund for their healthcare in Brussels as part of the normal social security enrolment process.

There are also special health insurance plans which have been designed specifically for expats and are valid in several countries. New arrivals should investigate whether they qualify for non-resident tax status. If this is the case, they may not be required to contribute to national social security, in which case they will probably be covered by their employer’s healthcare plan.

EU citizens can use their European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) to access state healthcare during a short-term visit. UK citizens can make use of their Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC), which replaced the EHIC for UK citizens post-Brexit. Ambulances are not part of the national healthcare plan but may be covered by private insurance for those who have it.

Below is a list of some of the most popular hospitals in Brussels for expats.
