Medical & Travel Insurance
DO NOT BUY THE INSURANCE UNTIL YOU GET A CONFIRMATION EMAIL WITH YOUR GROUP ASSIGNMENT. If you are going on the trip to Israel, Taglit-Birthright Israel requires that all trip participants and staff be covered with health insurance that covers you while you are in Israel. Nobody is planning to get sick, get hurt, but accidents unfortunately do happen and it’s always better to be prepared for the worse. Remember, this is a rule that comes directly from Taglit-Birthright Israel, and it is strictly enforced by Ezra. We recommend CTAS (Chai Travel Assistance Services), which is a comprehensive plan, tailor-made for Taglit-Birthright Israel participants, and reasonably priced. This is a highly recommended policy since there is no need to lay out money and then claim it back at home. In addition there is no co-pay or deductible. Lastly, the policy works with English-speaking contracted doctors in Israel. The policy includes baggage cover as well. Please note, the insurance fee is not refundable after the trip, or if you decide to cancel before the trip.
