Foreign student in Belgium? Be covered by social security!
In Belgium, to be covered in the event of a health problem (illness, accident, etc.), you must be registered with a mutual insurance company. This applies also to foreign students.
Partena Business & Expats has now become: Business & Expats Health insurance
What is a mutual insurance company?
A mutual insurance company is the reference organisation for all matters relating to the management of your healthcare in Belgium. In practical terms, if you need to see a doctor, buy medicines, be hospitalised following an accident, have an operation, etc., it is through the mutual insurance company that you can be reimbursed. Being registered with a mutual insurance company is therefore mandatory to be covered.
