AIM: 30 Years Of Experience In Caring For Americans In Israel

Going to Israel to learn or tour can be the experience of a lifetime for many people. What’s the best way to prevent a medical emergency, thousands of miles from home, from ruining that experience?

A medical plan with a proven track record of providing English-speaking physicians who respond in time of need, day or night. For the past 30 years, American Israel Medi-Plan (AIM) has been providing the type of quality medical care that puts the mind of parents and students at ease.

The physicians and nurses at the AIM Medical Center in Jerusalem, all English-speaking, have been selected for their experience, skills, and care and concern for patients.

The AIM Gold and Platinum Plans provide for comprehensive private medical services, emergency room, and hospitalization coverage throughout Israel, with no deductibles and no copayments. Prescribed medications are included, as is emergency dental care.

There is 24-hour doctor availability with nursing services provided to several schools.

In the case of a serious problem, the family is kept abreast of all developments and, if necessary, the family physician is also contacted.

The AIM advisory Council recently announced a new cooperative agreement with the Frenkel Emergency Medical Center. Emergency services are provided by specialists, many of whom are members of the Shaare Zedek hospital staff and coordinate patient care with the hospital if necessary. The Frenkel Emergency Medical Center provides AIM patients with a state-of-the-art medical imaging department, treatment rooms, laboratory, and other facilities.

The Advisory Council’s Prof. Dan Turner and Prof. Jonathan Mann have chosen Dr. Yaakov Esayag, director of internal medicine at Shaare Zedek Hospital, to guide AIM in expanding its services.
