According to one study; “Among the many services not included in national healthcare insurance in Israel are: dental care, purchase of eyeglasses and hearing aids, wheelchairs, orthopedic shoes, and other medical equipment.” Furthermore, not all medicines are subsidized by the national healthcare insurance, “So the survivors have to pay in full for many of the medications they need.” Many have had to choose between buying food and heating their homes in winter.
