Legal issues, rights and obligations are just as much an integral part of the healthcare system as the insurance and treatment options available within it.
Many people might be quick to pursue legal action if they think their rights have been violated, but this is almost never the best course of action. It is recommended that you 1) Understand your rights, 2) Submit formal complaints to the relevant parties, 3) Seek out legal aid and advice if necessary.
Many of the resources we offer provide information on health-related rights and entitlements. You should check out our All Rights Index for a comprehensive collection of this information.
Every public healthcare institution and organization in Israel is required to have an ombudsman – the address for complaints within that institution or organization. For more information on complaints and appeals, check out the following pages:
AACI’s Shira Pransky Project was founded to help English speakers in Israel better navigate the Israeli healthcare system and make use of the rights and services that are out there.
