Get peace of mind in Israel with a local medical insurance policy. Through a partnership with a leading Israeli insurance provider, Harel, travelers from abroad can obtain local health insurance in Israel that covers treatment and medication.


About the Policy

This short term medical-only policy with Harel offers:

  • No deductibles or co-pays
  • No claims or paperwork to submit for care
  • No out-of-pocket payments – all valid claims are paid directly by the insurer
  • Coverage for hospitalization, prescription medication, x-rays, emergency dental care, doctors visits and medical specialists (pre-existing conditions are not covered)
  • 24 hour English speaking call center and contracted English speaking doctors
  • A large list of experienced English speaking doctors and specialists

Even if you have coverage at home that extends abroad, you would still need to pay out of pocket in Israel, and then file a claim with your home insurance provider once you return. The same is true for travel insurance policies that include a medical benefit. In other words, the Harel local medical insurance policy is a convenient way to receive medical care in Israel without hidden costs or paperwork headaches.
