Many customers of health insurance are not aware of their rights. We are talking about the financial rights of those who have policies in the largest insurance companies in Israel, such as «Dikla» for members of the health insurance Fund Clalit, «Klal» for members of health insurance Leumit and Maccabi, and the insurance company «Phoenix» for members of the health insurance Fund Meuhedet.
If you are suffering from various diseases, which complicate your life and interfere to perform at least 3 daily activities from 6 (dressing, bathing, movement, toileting, eating, the ability to get out of bed and to sit in the chair yourself), urinary incontinence, memory impairment and susceptibility to Alzheimer’s, dementia (senile dementia), etc., you have the right to apply for obtaining money from the insurance company within your health insurance in the health insurance Fund.
Many owners of insurance in Israel are not aware that they are entitled payment. At the same time, insurance companies do not always send an insurance policy that explains the rights of the insured. And even if the insured receives a policy, it is, of course, in Hebrew, that not everyone can fully understand everything that is written in it
Maintenance receives the watch or special services from the national insurance Institute, having no idea that this is not all the help he put.
Consider the following examples:
1. Oleg has insurance «national insurance side» health insurance Fund «Clalit» through the insurance company Dikla and Harel. Oleg suffers from many diseases, and in 2004 he appeared in need of constant care, he was «side». From the national insurance Institute, he received the maximum number of hours nursing (metapelet).
And only after he accidentally read in the newspaper our article, it became clear that he has rights in «the national insurance side», which he did on his arrival in Israel avtomaticheski, and didn’t even know about it.
Oleg turned to our office with a request to know what rights he has under the insurance «national insurance side» and how those rights can be used. He wanted to understand which path is the shortest and reliable. After checking his documents, we turned to the insurance company by providing all the necessary information, and Oleg lump sum paid 250,000 shekels. In addition to this, he spent 3 years will receive a monthly payment of.
2. A., male, 85 years old, suffering from Parkinson’s disease since 2010, turned into our law office in 2014 with a request to get from bituah Leumi increase the hours for care. But he did not know that he is also entitled to remuneration from the insurance company, under health insurance from the health insurance Fund Clalit. Our office appealed on his behalf to the insurance company, and he received a payment of 150 thousand NIS. for 3 years, and a constant monthly payment of thousands of shekels over the next 3 years. It should be noted that A. produce a monthly payment of insurance premiums through the sick Fund Clalit, and did not know that their insurance policy also includes payments on long-term care («bituah side»).
Based on these examples we can conclude that even if you received a refusal of payment from the insurance company by contacting a specialist for settlement of such conflicts, you can get all the money due to you
