  • You need a payment voucher (hitchayvut) from the treating medical facility before claiming this benefit.
  • The patient must pay the deductible directly to the supplier. No reimbursement will be given beyond the sum of the payment voucher.
  • Patients who wish to purchase a wig from another supplier will be entitled to a reimbursement according to the terms of their additional health services plan (Shaban).

Please note

  • Some hospitals offer wig services, but you should check and compare prices with different suppliers, as with any purchase.
  • Hospital social workers can help with the process, especially for those having financial difficulties.
