Travel Insurance for Passover in Israel

Israel-travel-insurance-1

Are you coming to Israel for Passover? Travel insurance provides you with protection against medical costs. Many tourists arrive in Israel without any medical insurance, or with a plan that requires tourists to pay out of pocket for any medical surprises while you are away. When tourists return home, they need to deal with the paperwork and bureaucracy to get reimbursed for medical expenses.


Medical Problems on Passover

Medical problems and emergencies can happen anywhere, anytime. We cannot anticipate, them. With hundreds of thousands of tourists coming to Israel for Passover, the likelihood of medical problems arising increases. Some common unexpected medical expenses may include a bad sore throat, an emergency room visit for a broken leg from a fall, to a hospital stay for a heart attack or stroke. Each of these things happen every year to visitors coming in for Passover holidays. The costs of seeing a doctor, buying medication, or a hospital stay adds up quickly.

In the case of an unexpected medical emergency, such as a stroke, travel plans may need to be changed to assure a safe return home. In some cases, doctors recommended extending stays in Israel for several weeks. hospital bills, although nowhere near as high as in the US, can be costly.
In addition to having a medical problem on Passover, remember that the entire country, including hospitals, are on “holiday mode”. Due to many health care providers taking vacation, emergency facilities are usually overcrowded, urgent care clinics are packed, and there are fewer medical staff members to manage caseloads.

Travel insurance for tourists in Israel

Travel insurance in Israel is affordable, but does not include pre-existing medical problem coverage.

Truly amazing

My son went to Israel for a year requiring infusion every 6-8 weeks. It was very stressful at times to coordinate getting his meds sent to Israel, scheduling appointments, and having to worry about him going on his own. Then a friend told me about EMA Care. EMA Care was truly amazing.

Sensitive and timely help

I would like to recommend Eliana (EMA care) for her sensitive and timely help for clients who are having difficulty navigating the health care system Israel, specifically for Anglos, whether new olim or those of us who been here for many years.

The obstacles of interfacing with the health care system here is daunting, especially at a time when one is going through an acute or chronic condition that is protracted and complicated. Often one doesn’t know whom to turn to or where to go,

Meticulous in their preparations

During our recent visit to Israel, we really struggled to find food for our son who has anaphylactic level allergies to egg and sesame. We approached both restaurants and hotels and were told they were unable or unwilling to take responsibility for preparing his food.

Knowledgeable, thorough, and caring

When our son was injured in a car accident during his yeshiva year in Israel, he had to start navigating the medical system on his own. But once we contacted Dr. Eliana Aaron at EMA Care (www.HealthCareIsrael.com), she immediately flew into action. Dr. Aaron accompanied our son in the ER and made sure he and we knew at every step exactly what was done and what needed to be done, especially important for someone who suffered a concussion and

“Ema Extraordinaire”

“EMA” Care is so fitting a name for Dr. Eliana Aaron’s exceptional gap year concierge health care service. Dr. Aaron is not only an incredible health care professional; she is also an “Ema Extraordinaire” in every sense of the word. My child had a range of medical needs while abroad, some anticipated and others not, and she was there for him (and me) – even in the middle of the night, -- always calm, reassuring, thinking out of the box, getting him to the appropriate medical professionals
