Health insurance, social contributions, taxes
I have a question regarding health insurance if you are not paying social contributions. I have been registered in the Belgian health system for many years, having a Mutuelle, SIS card and sending in my invoices etc etc. Recently I got laid off from my work though, but I am not planning on getting a new one as I have enough funds to live off my investment income.
My concern though is, since I will not be paying any social contributions, where do I stand health care wise? For some time, it is business as usual as I am still in my redundancy period, but this will end eventually. Is there a way to get any kind of private insurance and if so, any idea how much it would cost
Until now, my children have been covered by me, but my wife works for an international institution and they can be covered by her workplace, which is fine by me and in principle I could actually also be covered as well through her work.
However, and maybe I am strange in this sense, even if Financially it might be in my best interest, I rather not be covered by her workplace as I don't feel entirely comfortable being supported by my wife. Also, if I choose to have my children continue as now where they are supported through my health insurance, how would that work if I am not paying social contributions?
I understand the best would be to contact my Mutuelle and also a tax accountant, but perhaps here somebody has some experience with this and would be so kind to advice on this
Thank you in advance for all answers
