This portal contains information related to type 2 diabetes, which is also known as adult-onset diabetes.


Diabetics being treated for diabetes 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 diabetics, visit the Ministry of Health's "Health Voice" website (in Hebrew).

For more information on juvenile diabetes, see: Juvenile Diabetes.
