Birthright Israel Health Insurance Requirements


Our insurance policies meet the Birthright Israel Health Insurance requirements. During your Birthright Israel trip, you are required to have your own health insurance policy, valid in Israel. The rule comes directly from Birthright Israel and is strictly enforced.

If you are not insured, or if your insurance policy does not cover you while abroad, you are required to purchase an insurance policy. Without this, you will not be able to travel to Israel. An easy way to fulfill Birthright’s insurance requirement is to purchase insurance through CTAS.
