Medical Procedures and Heath Insurance
The Global Yeshiva Gap year program requires every student to have medical insurance in Israel. The Yeshiva maintains a good working relationship with Egert & Cohen Insurance in Israel. The insurance plans cost roughly $1 per day.

Failure to carry recognized Israeli insurance (even if your insurance will ultimately cover your son’s medical needs in Israel) will require payment prior to treatment.
Students are advised to seek the guidance of the madrichim when they are ill, so that they can make the necessary arrangements for medical care.
As a general policy, students who are sick for more than 2 days will be encouraged to see a doctor. It is the student’s responsibility to inform the madrichim when they are sick.
