Health Minister Yaakov Litzman.

Health Minister Yaakov Litzman said on a national broadcast network Thursday that by early next year Israelis will have long-term care insurance.

The current situation in which families are forced to pay huge sums for private long-term care insurance policies for such coverage is “intolerable and must not continue,” he said.

Litzman stressed that Finance Minister and Kulanu party chairman Moshe Kahlon supports him in this matter.

The health minister said on the Channel 2 program, “Seder Yom,” that he has no doubt the coalition agreement applies to the creation of national long-term care insurance.

  1. To collect taxes from everyone so that someone taxpayers have never even seen can linger in their death bed at a $ 1000 a day is a national descrase.
    It is a wast of precious resources. It will not cost the famalies anything. They will keep loved-ones on life support for nintey days just because its free to them.
    Free long-term care is not a rational logical idea.
