Holocaust victims in Israel will now be eligible for more than $1,000 (up to NIS 5,000) per year in free dental care via the country’s kupat holim / health maintenance organizations (HMOs).
According to a report broadcast on Voice of Israel (Kol Yisrael) government radio, victims will be able to access their treatments at Leumit Dentika, Meuhedet Dental, MaccabiDent and Clalit Smile dental clinics.
Payment for the treatments will be made by the Company for Location and Restitution of Holocaust Victims directly to Leumit, Meuhedet, Maccabi and Clalit, the four HMOs that operate the nationwide network of dental clinics.
