Out-of-hours medical posts

You are in need of an urgent out-of-hours medical consultation? You can come to one of our 3 Brussels-based medical posts (during weeknights, weekends, and on bank holidays) for ad hoc assistance. Your MD/GP will receive a medical report after the consultation to ensure a proper follow-up.

The Athena dispensary also provides ad hoc consultations during weekdays for patients who don't have a personal/family doctor.

Home visits

If you are unable to come to one of our medical posts, call 02/201 22 22: we will send an on-call MD/GP to your home as soon as possible. Home visits are organised during the week from 7pm to 8am and on weekends and bank holidays around the clock. The service covers all 19 municipalities of the Brussels-Capital Region.

When you call with the request for a home visit, you will have to give us the following information:

  • Information about your symptoms and physical abilities
  • Your address and phone number
  • Your national registration number (if you do not know where to find it, have your ID card handy)
  • The name of your personal/family doctor


After the consultation with our on-duty MD/GP, your personal/family doctor will receive a medical report. 

Officially-defined fees

All consultations are charged following the officially-defined fees (NIHDI). There are several possibilities for the payment:

  • If you are entitled to a higher reimbursement rate, the third-party payment system can be applied. Then, you only pay the amount that corresponds to your personal intervention.
  • If you possess a valid emergency medical assistance card from the CPAS/OCMW, you will not have to pay for the consultation. The invoice will directly be sent to your public social welfare centre.
  • If you are registered within a Medical House, you will have to pay for the consultation entirely. However, you will be able to be reimbursed by your Medical House upon presentation of the treatment certificate.
  • If you are not insured through the Belgian social security system, you will have to pay for the total amount of the consultation but we will give you a document that will allow you to be reimbursed by the social security system of your home country.
