The community health center

Who are we?

The community health center is a group practice where several health care providers such as doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, a social worker, a dietician, … are working together “under one roof”.   Like all other community health centers, we are using the flat-rate payment system.


How does it work ?

After signature of a contract, you can contact the community health center “De Vaart” for primary health care. You can consult all health care providers mentioned above, on site. Thanks to this contract, you do not need to pay for your visits in the community health center.  The settlement for this happens between the community health center and the health care fund (with which you need to be affiliated correctly) themselves. This means that we receive a fixed fee on a monthly basis, per patient, from  the health care fund, regardless of the number of visits. This system is also known as a flat-rate payment system.


How to register ?

This can be done in 5 simple steps.

1. Conditions
