Commissioner of Capital Markets, Insurance and Savings Yadin Antebi has presented his draft guidelines to obligate insurance companies to present members of national health funds with the options available for supplementary cover for medical operations, the Finance Ministry said Sunday. If passed into law, the insured party will be given the option at the time of joining a fund to obtain medical coverage for operations via their respective health funds, the ministry explained. The goal, it said, is to raise the awareness of the insured of operations coverage available and, in so doing, reduce the overlap of coverage that occurs for private operations.
