Si'udit - Long Term Nursing Care

What Nursing Care  is an Israeli citizen entitled to?
Bituach Leumi will fund up to 18 hours of home care per week, depending on level of disability, for a man over 67 or a woman over 64 who cannot perform 5 out of 6 of the basic functions (namely getting up / lying down, dressing / undressing, washing oneself /  shaving, eating / drinking, control over body functions, walking).

What does the Kupot Cholim offer you?
If you have additional cover (eg. Meuchedet Zahav, Maccabi Magen etc.), which we highly recommend, they will fund home care to the value of ± 3,620* NIS per month for the first 3 years and ± 2,200* NIS per month for the subsequent 2 years, if one cannot perform 3 of the 6 basic functions.
(*figures based on Meuchedet Zahav)

What is the true cost of nursing care?
Home care can cost approximately 10,00 NIS per month. Care in a hospital/institution can cost 10-20,000 NIS per month depending on the quality of care.

How to cover the shortfall?
Take out a Siudit insurance policy!
