Health care insurance / Incoming exchange student
In Belgium, it is mandatory to register for individual health care. It is therefore necessary to register with a mutual insurance company (Mutuelle).
This information concerns students in mobility. For students coming from abroad and registered or in the process of regular registration at the University, consult these pages.
Upon your arrival in Belgium, you must register for a mutual insurance company (Mutuelle) of your choice, present your health insurance card and communicate your Belgian account number. In this case, a large part of medical costs incurred in Belgium will be reimbursed (medical consultation, medication, etc.).
- If you are from an EEA country (EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway), your national system covers you in Belgium. Before leaving your country, you must acquire a European insurance card. This card will cover you in case of sickness abroad. It is valid during a period of one year maximum, allows you to register for a mutual in Belgium and to be reimbursed for a large part of your medical costs.
However, it is well worth having a "all-risks" mobility insurance for the duration of your stay.
- If you are from a country outside of the EEA, you must ensure your coverage either through an "all-risk" insurance from your home country or by taking out an insurance policy in Belgium.
Moreover, all students enrolled in ULiège benefit from civil liability and bodily injury insurance for any accident tied to their academic activities, be it in Belgium or abroad.
All students enrolled at ULiège may benefit from consultations at the University Hospital (Sart Tilman University Hospital) and at Brull Polyclinics (City Center). As long as you are registered with a mutual insurance company (mutuelle), these consultations are fully reimbursed. It is necessary to communicate the identification number that appears on your student card when registering at the consultation.
