Who to call
In a medical emergency an ambulance will take you to the nearest A and E centre. The Belgian compulsory health insurance scheme reimburses 50% of the cost of emergency health service transport.
Documents you might need
Wherever you go, you should always carry some form of ID with you, whether it be a residence card or driving licence. If you are still waiting for your healthcare insurance to come though and you are an EU citizen, then make sure you have your European Health Insurance Card with you at all times, which will provide cover for you if needed, in line with your home country.
If you are not an EU national, then it is advisable to contact your embassies for specific instructions, before arriving in Belgium.
