This page contains some basic yet necessary resources for navigating the Israeli healthcare system including some useful resources in PDF format such has health plan brochures, which can be easily viewed, downloaded and printed, as well as links to many forms you might need in order to claim rights, benefits or services. Please note that all of the PDF resources included on this page are in English, though many of the forms are only available in Hebrew.
While all of the documents here should be in their most updated form, they are not all necessarily up-to-date, as English content is usually not a top priority for the organizations that produce them. They should therefore only be used as general guides and not the ultimate authority on any issue.

The fact that some are years old is simply indication that production of materials in English is not a top priority for the kupot cholim, government ministries and other organizations.
