Health insurance

Everybody living and/or working in Belgium is required to sign up for health insurance.

If you are employed by the University of Antwerp and you pay social security contributions in Belgium, you will be required to join a Belgian health insurance scheme (mutuality) or the Hulpkas voor Ziekte- en Invaliditeitsverzekering (HZIV). Insurance in your home country will no longer need to be paid, in this case.
