When receiving a post doc position at the UH, medical insurance is mandatory.

Prior to your arrival you should have medical insurance which can be issued in your home country or issued by the Israel medical insurance company. We recommend that you purchase the Israeli medical insurance as medical care and pharmaceuticals are very expensive. The Israeli insurance covers these costs while the Insurance from abroad requires that you pay for all expenses and only afterwards they will reimburse you.
