DKV Belgium was founded in 1964, as a first international subsidiary of Deutsche Krankenversicherung AG.  Meanwhile, DKV has become the private health insurance specialist in Belgium.  DKV offers a complete range of guarantees, both for individuals and companies.  Over 2 million people entrust DKV Belgium with their health insurance.  In individual health insurance, DKV leads the Belgian market with about 73%.  For group insurances, their market share is around 20%.  None of this would be possible without the help of nearly 8.000 brokers.
