How are my hospital costs reimbursed?

With Medi-Link

  1. You can declare your admission via the form or via the app.
  2. Once your declaration has been accepted, you will receive a 010 number from us. You need to give this number to the hospital desk when you register in the hospital. When this 010 number has been correctly linked, the hospital sends the hospitalisation invoice (day admission or overnight stay) digitally and automatically to Vanbreda. That's when the hospital gives you a nursing note. It clearly states that you don't have to pay anything at that moment.
  3. After about 2 to 3 months, the hospital will send us a hospitalisation invoice.
  4. Vanbreda will pay the invoice directly and in full to the hospital. At that moment you will receive our detailed settlement note with an overview of all costs that are not covered. You'll pay those costs back to Vanbreda.
  5. After the hospitalisation invoice has been settled, you can submit any ambulatory medical expenses from the pre-post period of your admission.

Without Medi-Link

  1. You can declare your admission via the form or via the app. When your declaration has been accepted, but you cannot use Medi-Link, you don't have to do anything at that moment.
  2. You will receive a hospitalisation invoice at home after 2 to 3 months.
  3. Pay the hospital bill to the hospital.
  4. Submit the complete hospitalisation invoice to us (for day admission or overnight stay), including the detailed calculation of the costs. We will calculate our intervention according to your policy conditions. Please also provide us with ambulatory medical costs from the pre-post period of your admission.
  5. You will receive a settlement note, and we will deposit the amount onto your account.
