Legal Issues in the Healthcare System 1, 2, 3

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.

Step 1: Understanding Your Rights

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.

  • Information about the most basic healthcare rights can be found on our “General Healthcare Rights” page. Health-related employment rights can be found here.
  • Social workers in the kupot cholim, hospitals and other institutions and organizations are invaluable resources for getting basic advice related to rights and services.
  • Assistance and support organizations catering to specific population and focusing on specific illnesses or disorders are also great resources for more specialized expertise on rights. If you have diabetes, for example, an organization focusing on providing support for diabetes patients should be consulted. Check out our Organizations Directory where you can search and browse hundreds of health-related assistance and support organizations in Israel, by clicking here.

Step 2: Where to Complain

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:

Step 3: Legal Aid and Advice

If you think your rights have been violated and legal action might be necessary, there are a number of sources of free and subsidized legal aid and advice. AACI’s Shira Pransky Project does not provide any direct legal aid or advice and aims to provide the most comprehensive resources available to better understand your legal health-related rights, claim them, and know who to contact in order to request free or subsidized legal aid when necessary.

WARNING: Dangerous levels of methanol in questionable vodka and arak

Bottles of “Vodka Kremlin” and “Nasich HaArak” that were confiscated by police were tested by Misrad HaBriut and was found to have 523 – 533 times the legal amount of methanol in them.  The arak is suspected to be a forgery because of various misspellings such as the word “ערק” which is spelled “ארק” and the word “ממולא” which is spelled “ממלוא”.   

The permitted amount of methanol in vodka and arak according to Israeli Standard 1572 is 10 grams per 100 liters ethanol.

Drinking excessive amounts of methanol can lead to blindness and even death.  Methanol poisoning is expressed as dizziness, confusion, weakness, headaches, vomiting, stomachaches, and convulsions.

The Ministry of Health is calling on the public not to drink these products because they are a danger to public health.

If needed, you can report to the moked at *5400 or the Department of Enforcement in Misrad HaBriut at 02-6551797, 02-6551772 or email modin@eliav.health.gov.il.

Eating Disorders – Treatment and Support Options in Israel

An eating disorder refers to a number of psychological disorders related to insufficient food intake or overeating. Individuals suffering from them may have difficulty admitting that they have a problem before seeking help.
Coverage and provision of services for eating disorders is essentially the same as any other psychological disorder.

How do I get treatment for an eating disorder?

  • Discuss the steps to finding treatment with your general practitioner. You may need to see a diagnostic psychiatrist or psychologist to get referred to specific treatment.
  • You can also make an appointment with a kupah social worker at your local clinic for additional guidance.

Where can I get treatment and what does it entail?

  • There are clinics specializing in treatment of eating disorders that are either directly operated by the kupat cholim, or are private and may or may not be affiliated with a specific kupah.
  • Treatment options  may be either in-patient or out-patient and the specific type of referral is based on the severity of the patient’s condition.
  • The vast majority of eating disorders are treated through out-patient care, while those who are hospitalized are generally placed in the facility’s mental health ward or a department specializing in eating disorders.
  • Care is generally provided by a multi-disciplinary professional team comprised of doctors, mental health professionals, dieticians and other professionals.
  • Updated listings of treatment facilities with which the kupah is affiliated should be requested directly from the kupah.
  • The Israeli Association for Eating Disorders (IAED) website has a comprehensive listing of public and private facilities specializing in treatment of eating disorders (in Hebrew). 

What organizations offer support for eating disorders?

Diabetes Portal

Diabetics being treated for diabetes with insulin or other medications are considered to be chronically ill and are thus entitled to various benefits from the health plans and related to various medical services. Due to the fact that each health plan has different policies, it always recommended to clarify all relevant rights and entitlements with your health plan.
