Abstract

Passage of the National Health Insurance Law (NHIL) in 1995 marked a turning point in the history of the Israeli healthcare system, ensuring sustainable, high-quality medical care to all eligible Israeli residents. Over 100 amendments have been made to the law over the years, yet additional adaptations are required to ensure the law’s relevance in years to come. In honor of the 25th anniversary of the passage of the law, the 19th annual Dead Sea Conference brought together prominent figures in the Israeli healthcare system for a discussion on “25 Years to the NHIL: Suggested Changes and Adaptations”. Key topics discussed in the conference were regulatory aspects related to the healthcare system, administration of medical services, and financial aspects pertinent to the NHIL. The following meeting report summarizes the insights and recommendations from this conference.
