Yedidim Medical Insurance

When choosing Yedidim, we recommend that you come to Israel with travelers insurance covering you for your first 3 days in the country, in case you get sick or have an accident, as the insurance becomes valid only 48 hours after landing in Israel. Yedidim offers two insurance policies to choose from, which provide you with coverage all around Israel, and in both plans you can request a doctor’s visit to your dorm room 24 hours a day, if needed, free of charge. The differences between the two insurance policies are as follows: Prestige Policy with Clalit Medical Services –Recommended Offers you health services in Haifa and at locations all over the country through the Clalit Health Fund. This policy allows you access to the medical clinic located on campus. This insurance covers some pre-existing conditions, and includes medical checkups. The cost of this policy is $1.7 per day up to the age of 65 for short term periods or $2.3 per day for a year. Prestige Policy with Harel Provides you with Harel health services at Harel clinics in Haifa and at locations all over the country. This insurance does not cover pre-existing conditions, and does not include medical checkups. The insurance costs $ 1.5 per day up to the age of 39 for short term periods or $ 2 for an annual policy. Note: Payment may be done by credit card or in cash (USD or NIS). If you need any help, write an e-mail to y_health@yedidim.co.il
