A new reimbursement framework for remote consultations will be launched in Belgium in spring 2022

In spring 2022, a new reimbursement system for remote consultations will be launched with new reimbursement codes and conditions.

New reimbursement codes were created instead of temporary codes introduced during the COVID19 crisis:

  • 101673 Video consultation by a general practitioner (€22.44);
  • 101695 Video consultation by a medical specialist (€22.44);
  • 101710 Video consultation by a general practitioner on the basis of acquired rights or with a medical degree (€14.03);
  • 101732 Telephone consultation by a doctor (€10.10).

Four telephone and four video consultations per year, per patient, and per doctor will be reimbursed. Only consultations with a doctor who previously treated a patient or upon the referral will be reimbursed. Except for this, patients will need to pay a co-payment.

The fees mentioned for the consultations can be changed until spring when this payment system will enter into force.
