Medical services

All residents of Belgium, Belgian nationals or otherwise, are required by law to be covered by a health insurance policy. Obviously, it is also in your own interest. Without insurance coverage, the costs of medical care can quickly spiral out of control.  So, make sure to subscribe to health insurance, as it is not taken care of by your institution.   On average, 75% of the official rates of (Belgian) medical expenses are  reimbursed.
