Medical Insurance for Israelis Living in North America

Medical Insurance for Israelis Living in North America

Israelis moving to the US following a job offer or other opportunity face many preparations: schools for the children, work permits, housing, etc. Of course, the family’s health insurance is a primary concern.
Medical insurance abroad generally, and in the US specifically, is different from the health services we know in Israel. The US system is based on private insurance (at least until future reforms are implemented). A broad range of insurance plans are offered, making the choice extremely complicated and confusing.

The DavidShield PPO Plan is a private medical insurance that offers you genuine peace of mind through extensive coverage tailored for the whole family. The great advantage of DavidShield PPO lies in its custom-tailored features for Israelis living abroad, in addition to general extensive coverage. Thus, through our plan, you’ll be insured not only in every part of the US, but also on visits to Israel – all through one Smart Card. In fact, DavidShield PPO is the only insurance plan offering full services in both the US and Israel on one card.

DavidShield operates in the US through the UnitedHealthCare medical provider network, one of the leading healthcare systems in the country. UnitedHelathCare is a Fortune 100 company and insures over 20 million people around the world. The company allows access to a network of medical services with over 470,000 doctors and 4,500 hospitals in the US.
