About the Policy
Through a partnership with a leading Israeli insurance provider, Harel, travelers from abroad traveling on an Authentic Israel-organized program can obtain local health insurance in Israel that 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. This policy does not cover injuries related to “extreme sports” (ATVing, rappelling, surfing, etc.) or self-inflicted injuries.
