Reimbursement

Supplemental plans of most Kupot Cholim reimburse up to 75% of birth education course and doula services! Some hospitals in Jerusalem give packbacks too. There are also private health insurances that reimburses birth prep courses. For example: If you are booking a birth prep course for 1000 and you have Clalit platinum you can use your Sal Herayon to get a reimbursement of 75% = 750 NIS, which means you pay only 250 NIS.

When I am your doula, I will provide you with receipts for doula services and birth education so that you can maximize your reimbursement.

Always check your eligibility for reimbursements from your Kupat Cholim/hospital as I cannot guarantee reimbursement. Different Kupot Cholim have varying reimbursement policies that frequently change. While I strive to keep this page updated, I can’t guarantee accuracy. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if the Kupah asks you to hand in any more documents (such as my birth ed or doula diploma etc.).
