This portal contains information about the benefits and rights given to people with type 1 diabetes (juvenile diabetes).

Individuals with juvenile diabetes being treated with insulin or other medications are considered to be chronically ill and are thus entitled to various benefits from the health plans and related to various medical services. Due to the fact that each health plan has different policies, it always recommended to clarify all relevant rights and entitlements with your health plan.

For specific information on medications and medical equipment provided to individuals with juvenile diabetes, visit the Ministry of Health's "Health Voice" website (in Hebrew).

For more information on the rights of people with type 2 diabetes ("adult diabetes"), see the Diabetes portal.
