Why do we need this?
Newspaper headlines these days paint a gloomy picture of public medicine in Israel. Private health insurance enables you and members of your family to turn easily and efficiently to private medical care. No need for months of waiting for your turn or for “favors” from HMOs or the public hospitals. When it comes to matters of our health, we all want the most rapid and professional care from the best physician at the most advanced hospital with a minimum chase and run-around after liability-for-payment agreements and other forms. Private health insurance allows you, in case of necessity, to allocate resources to what is really essential—you, your family and the health of all of you.
