The University Medical Services (UMS)
Dear Researchers, Students and Visitors,
Harel Insurance & Finance Ltd., Israel’s leading firm in health insurance and "Yedidim", which serves thousands of students in Israel with professionalism and personal attention, have joined together to create a comprehensive insurance protection program tailored to your personal needs. This includes:
1. Health insurance.
The University Medical Services (UMS) plan is tailored for students who come to study in one of the academic institutes in Israel for the duration of one year or less. The plan covers medical care within the borders of Israel and packages can be tailored for short-term or medium-term coverage for up to 12 months. For health insurance requirements longer than one year, please contact our office to discuss options for doctoral candidates, medical students, scholars conducting long-term research projects and others planning to be affiliated with an academic institution for up to 6 years.
2. Travel insurance.
The First Class Travel Policy covers trips outside of Israel for a set period of time (e.g. to attend conferences, to take a vacation or to visit your family at home). The policy provides comprehensive medical coverage while abroad , transportation back to Israel for medical care in the event of an emergency, and an option for baggage and third-party insurance.
3. Apartment contents, personal possessions and laptop insurance, as well as third party liability insurance in Israel.
These insurance options can be combined and tailored to your needs to provide an overall insurance protection program, covering you in Israel and throughout the world.
Our staff are happy to help you choose the right program for you.
We wish you success in your academic pursuits and an enjoyable, healthy stay in Israel.
