Health insurance premiums
For a patient receiving a general disability pension who has no other income, a minimum health insurance premium of NIS 103 per month will be deducted from his retirement (as of January 1, 2014). If he has other income, he will be required to pay from his income and not from the pension payment. A patient receiving special services is exempt from paying health insurance.
The Public Admissibility Commission is the body that assists the public in exercising rights under the State Health Insurance Law. An application to the Public Rights Commission in the Ministry of Health is made after the means have been exhausted with the HMOs. For your use – Public Admissibility Commission, Ministry of Health.
