What are Israel’s medical facilities like?
Israel offers some of the world’s best medical care and medicines are available in Israel. Visitors are required to have health insurance and – in most cases – medical insurance is included in the cost of your program. You can find information in English about emergency medical facilities and after-hours pharmacies in the Jerusalem Post and the English language edition of Ha'aretz newspapers.
If you take any medications regularly, be sure to have the generic name and active ingredient, as well as a copy of the prescription, with you as brand names will be different.
