The CAAMI/HZIV offers students Belgium's compulsory medical care insurance. This includes both a contribution to the costs of medical care and the partial reimbursement of certain medicines.
Always the most advantageous status
The CAAMI/HZIV will register you in the most advantageous status for you:
- If your legal residence is in Belgium, you will be registered as "resident". If you have no official income, you do not have to pay a contribution. If you do have an income, you will pay a contribution proportional to your income.
- If your legal residence is abroad, you may be registered as a "student". To be insured, provide us with an annual certificate of registration from your educational institution and pay a quarterly contribution (EUR 74.72 per quarter in 2023).
- If you are from a European Economic Area country, you can register without paying a contribution. Provide us with your European health insurance card obtained from your national insurance institution.
