Tourists, Students And Foreign Workers
If you are a tourist, student or foreigner working living in Israel, it is highly important that you gain access to medical services, should the need arise.
All non-Israeli citizens seeking health insurance have a variety of options. You can choose a private policy from one of the four Health Maintenance Organizations (Clalit, Maccabi, Leumit,Meuhedet). The Harel Insurance and Finance Company provides another type of foreign insurance to tourists, students, and foreign workers.
- Tourists with travel health insurance policy from their home country will pay out of their pocket for medical services and submit a receipt for reimbursement to their health care provider.
- Students are usually provided with comprehensive health care policies through the university, and should contact the program’s head for further information.
- Foreigners should also be provided with a health insurance policy by an employer. Please contact your employer with questions about your individualized policy.
- Four medical insurance policies cover standard medical services from one of the four healthcare service providers in Israel.
