Reforms in Israel’s long-term care insurance to improve coverage for soldiers, babiesIsraeli Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon and the Commissioner of the Capital Market, Insurance and Savings Department Dorit Salinger agreed on a series of steps to expand the long-term care insurance of the medical insurance groups.
Israeli Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon and the Commissioner of the Capital Market, Insurance and Savings Department Dorit Salinger agreed on a series of steps that will lead to the expansion of the long-term care insurance given to 4.5 million medical insurance members. Coverage improvement is the first step in the comprehensive reform.
One of the most significant steps is expected to enable soldiers, including career soldiers, to continue having their medical insurance coverage during the military service. The reform will allow soldiers to join a long-term care insurance in any insurance group without a preliminary medical examination.

An additional change is expected to include coverage of nursing cases that may occur in the first three years of an insured child. This means that parents will now be able to give their children private nursing coverage as part of their insurance policy from the day of their birth.
Another significant change in the policy now automatically recognizes a client who is confined to a wheelchair or bed as someone who cannot move independently. This change is expected to ease the process of recognition of eligibility for policyholders.
“The new instructions will make it easier for IDF soldiers, children under the age of 3 and those with limited mobility to exercise their rights,” stated Kahlon. “The changes will increase their certainty and ensure that when the time comes, the insured will receive fair and available insurance.”
