Am I paying full price or are these plans part government subsidized?
You actually pay a very small percentage. The bulk of the cost for insurance is funded by the Israeli government. They do this to attract students and tourists to come visit and to consider living in Israel permanently.
Are there any other services to take advantage of, such as gyms, nutrition etc.?
We will soon be offering free admission to certain gyms and pools in and around the Jerusalem for “Best Care” members.
Other than the monthly fee, are there any additional costs?
There is a one-time $65 activation fee. There are no other additional charges.
Can I upgrade or downgrade between plans?
Yes! However, there is a fee to downgrade.
Do you offer family/group plans?
Yes! Call us for special pricing on family and group plans.
Does MI cover everything, or is there a co-pay?
Generally, everything is covered, however, it varies from plan to plan and it depends on which service. For an exact list of services provided under each plan please visit this link.
Does MI cover medications?

Are there any cheaper ways to get Insurance in Israel?
Yes. You can pay for travel insurance. However, Meuhedet International (MI) has proven to be the most affordable insurance for foreign citizens.
Why am I not insured by my current (local) insurance provider?
The most that insurance companies like Blue Cross etc. cover is 30 days when out of the country. They also do not cover everything.
Why not just use travel insurance?
Among other reasons…
1) With MI there’s no requirement to lay out money or to save your receipts and mail them in. All you need to do is walk in and show your insurance ID.
2) MI covers a much wider range of services and medications than any other leading travel insurance.
