Distribution of the budget
The financing of a hospital through the financial resources budget comes from the individual distribution of the overall hospital budget among all hospitals. In January 2023, this overall budget was set at a maximum amount of €9,935,557,653 for the general hospitals. The FRB has increased by 34% over the past five years from 7.4 billion in 2019 to 9.9 billion in 2023.

The FRB has three main components: a budget for short-term credit charges (Part A2), an operating costs budget (Part B) and a budget for the regularisation of post-financing of the various parts of the FRB (Part C). Hospital financing is mainly based on lump sums, real costs or fee-for-service services.
