All Technion International students MUST have full Israeli health insurance coverage while in Israel.
The health insurance policy must be finalized prior to your arrival in Israel. We recommend Harel-Yedidim Medical Insurance.
If you are an Israeli citizen and you have state medical coverage, you are exempt from purchasing medical insurance upon providing proof of medical coverage.
The insurance offers a yearly plan for 365 days, coverage within the borders of Israel, and, if needed, doctor visits at your dorm room 24 hours a day without extra cost.
The Prestige Policy is a policy with continuance of coverage from one year to the next as long as you will renew it before the policy expires.
The medical services are provided by Clalit Health Services with clinics in Haifa, and throughout the country.
There is a Clalit Health Services clinic on campus, for your convenience.
You can visit the family doctors at the clinic on campus as well as at the clinics around the Technion.
The Prestige policy costs NIS 11.90 per day, for policyholders under the age of 65*.
*Prices are subject to change.
Note: The policy does not cover pre-existing medical conditions.
There is a coverage for worsening of pre-exiting condition up to US$1,000.
