Residing abroad for two or more years and whose payments of health insurance contributions are in arrears

An Israeli resident who hase been living abroad for two or more consecutive years and who does not pay health insurance contributions to the National Insurance Institute or who is in arrears in the payment of these contributions for at least 12 months  loses his rights to medical care services in Israel for 6 months at the most, under the State Health Insurance Law.

Payment of the debt does not exempt you from being subject to a waiting period to get medical care services, but you can redeem the waiting period with a special payment.

Here is how the waiting period for medical services is calculated.
