Every patient is entitled to have medical confidentiality maintained
There are cases when patients are required to waiver on medical confidentiality in order to provide care or assess eligibility for pensions, benefits or compensation

  • Those applying for government benefits or pensions (i.e. from the National Insurance Institute or the Holocaust Survivors Rights Authority) require a review of their medical condition as part of the examination of eligibility.

To Whom and How to Apply

  • In cases where a waiver of confidentiality is necessary for medical treatment, or to file a claim to an insurance company - A waiver of medical confidentiality must be submitted to the relevant care provider (for the purpose of granting the necessary treatment that violates the medical confidentiality of the patient).
  • For benefit or pension applications - A waiver of medical confidentiality must be submitted to the relevant government ministry or another body examining eligibility.

Stages of the Process

  • All care providers and medical facilities may establish procedures for waiving medical confidentiality.
  • Waiving medical confidentiality is usually performed in writing with a waiver of medical confidentiality form.
  • In cases where a patient has not provided a wavier of confidentiality in writing, they may waive confidentiality orally in the presence of two witnesses. The waiver must be documented on the patient's medical records soon after.
  • For more information regarding waiving medical confidentiality when disclosing medical information about a patient, see: Obtaining Information from the Medical Record.
