Home-visits, House-calls & Emergency Medical Services
Hebrew: ביקור בית
House-calls & Home-visits
As a member of one of the 4 health funds, in Israel, should you require it, a doctor can make home-visit. You are required to pay for this service. In cases where the visit is found to have been justified, (post operative for example) your health fund will reimburse you- either fully or co-pay. Check with your health fund what the conditions are exactly, how much they will reimburse you and what your contribution will be.
