health care for asylum seekers in Belgium, it is wrong and it is not efficiently organized. That said, the Federal Knowledge centre for Healthcare (KCE) in a new report. It calls for a unified system, in which asylum-seekers regardless of their status or place of residence of the same care that you would be able to enjoy it. But who is responsible for the management thereof, to allow the centre to the decision-makers.

Each and every applicant on the Belgian territory, to arrive and for asylum,, for the duration of the procedure of access to the health care system. Each year 20,000-25,000 people that are more likely to have health problems to contend with, due to their precarious living conditions in their country of origin or during their journey to Europe. It may, for example, communicable diseases such as tuberculosis (tb) or hiv or non-communicable diseases, such as diabetes or heart disease. Some of them are suffering from ptsd, or were victims of gender-based violence.

How is the access to the Belgian healthcare system is arranged, depending on the status and place of residence of the applicant. For those of you who will be staying in a collective reception centre managed by Fedasil or the Red Cross, which has a free primary care provided. Asylum-seekers can stay in a local care initiative under the administration of the public WELFARE, or a ngo, and have to get a permit before they’re allowed to be a health professional be consulted. In the collective centres, the pulling of the teeth, kinderbrillen, milk substitutes, whether pain killers be compensated, while the public centres for social WELFARE will control the decision and should be responsible for the funding. For specialist care, and the situation is even more complex. And, of course, in the centres for unaccompanied minors, where the guardian of the young person must be registered with the compulsory health insurance.

“Financially, and operationally viable”.

The access to care is unequal and is not efficiently organised. “The co-existence of parallel systems creates a complexity that neither asylum seekers, nor even the professionals find their path,” says KCE is fixed. It is, therefore, proposing to use the systems in order to harmonise, and a general envelope, which also provides services for prevention, health promotion, and support service providers, transport services, etc., etc.) includes: How much it will cost, it is not the well-known “in the absence of complete data. However, the KCE estimated that it is financially feasible, because it’s going to be a relatively small group. Once an applicant has been approved, it must be located in health insurance and he gets into a regular zorgcircuit.

If this is a new system and need to manage, let, the, KCE, in the middle of it. The slides have two options: either all of the asylum seekers are covered by the compulsory health insurance (Riziv / inami), or be centrally managed by Fedasil. For the practical implementation appear to have all of the options are feasible, but some will require more far-reaching organisational reforms and more investments in technology. The impact on the workload of the involved services in all of the cases, it is feasible it. The ball is now in the court of the policy makers,” concludes the Center.
