Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked and head of the Knesset Health Commission Idit Silman have reached an agreement with the Terem network of emergency clinics to provide medical assistance to refugees from Ukraine.
The network will receive refugees free of charge in all its clinics, providing both emergency and delayed care (prescriptions for drugs for chronic diseases, etc.). At the same time, the agreement will apply only to refugees who arrived in Israel from the day of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, that is, from February 24. Citizens of Ukraine who arrived in the country before February 24 and were here illegally will be able to receive assistance only in a clinic for illegal immigrants.
In the meantime, the Ministry of Health continues to negotiate with the aim of providing refugees with health insurance through the sickness funds.
