Due to the Corona crisis, many services in Israel have become available online or via email. Until recently, however, foreigners arriving in Israel, were required to appear in person to register for Kupat Cholim.
Mrs. Nechama Nulman and Mrs. Shani Wahrsager of Chaim V’Chessed’s Medical Department engaged with Kupat Cholim officials on this matter. We are pleased to announce that, due to their advocacy, it is now possible for tourists to register for Kupat Cholim Meuchedet via email. We hope that other Kupot Cholim will follow suit, as well.
To apply for Meuchedet:
- Completely fill out these forms.
- Students must provide: Copy of passport, credit card number, אישור לימודים (Proof of being a student)
- A couple needs the above, plus copy of marriage license or their kesuba.
- A child needs all of the above, plus letter from Israeli doctor.
All documents should be scanned and attached as a PDF file, and sent to TouristJer@meuhedet.co.il
Note: Despite this option, WE STILL RECOMMEND APPLYING IN PERSON WHENEVER POSSIBLE.
