Question:

Hello, I will be moving to Belgium in a few months from the US to be with my boyfriend. If I get a job in Belgium it will be a US Federal job working in Brussels. I'm not quite sure how this will work when it comes to finding a DR. and getting Health Insurance. I take a medication that is prescribed on a 90-day basis so I'd like to have this figured out before I go.

Thank you for any advice you can offer.

Answer:

Hi,
Once you start working for an employer back in the US, there is no posibility to join the Belgian legal health insurance.
The only way to join the system is by working or having an income in Belgium or the rest of the European Economic Space Area.
I presume you can consider a private medical insurance.
Kind regards,
Dany Coppens
