What if I get sick while on a Birthright Israel trip?
Medical care will very often be entrusted to fully trained para-medical personnel, although a doctor will always be available and on call, as will the local hospitals. In extreme situations, participants will be transferred to another city for specialized medical treatment when necessary, and, where indicated, will later be returned to the country of origin for further treatment. Participants are responsible for having personal medical insurance coverage, which shall be valid in Israel throughout the period covered by the Tour. (If you do not have medical insurance and are purchasing travel/medical insurance for the sole purpose of this trip, you may want to consider supplementary coverage for continuation of treatment/care in your home country if required when you return home.)
