Note: This post is specifically about Hadassah Hospital’s Sharap service. Other private and non-profit hospitals in Israel offer similar services.

If you are dealing with specialists or procedures in the Jerusalem area, you should know about Sharap.

Sharap is the private health services associated with Hadassah Hospitals that enables patients to select the senior physician who will treat them, both for the outpatient clinics and for surgery and hospitalization at Hadassah. Sharap can also be arranged to obtain more timely clinic appointments or procedure scheduling as well as access to preferred laboratories, imaging equipment, and operating theaters.

According to Hadassah’s website, Sharap services also make accessible medical treatment in all medical fields, “second opinion” consulting, and legal medical opinions for use in court or for the medical committees of the National Insurance Institute, Ministry of Defense, Ministry of Health, etc.

Sharap is a private, paid service, however your Kupat Cholim’s supplemental plan may include reimbursement, sometimes as much as 90%. Speak to your kupah first to find out what the policy is for your plan.
