Student Health Insurance

We recommend the Harel Insurance plan, Israel’s largest health insurer,

for anyone staying for up to one year in Israel. This is an inexpensive and

comprehensive short-term local policy offering private coverage, including

hospitalization, medication, general doctors and specialists. There is an

excellent list of contracted English-speaking doctors and there is no deductible

/ excess for medical services. In other words, no need to pay and claim back home.

Cover is comprehensive and backed by a 24 hour English speaking customer service.

This plan does not include maternity cover.

Question: If I or my parents keep my U.S. or overseas insurance policy running,

do I really need this?

Answer: The advantage of local policies lies in the fact that everything is covered

in Israel without any cash outlay. There is no need to pay and claim back home,

and there is no excess or co-payment – all medical services are billed directly to the insurance company.
