Ministerial C'tee to Discuss Banning Private Practice in Public Hospitals


The Knesset Ministerial Committee on Legislation will discuss today (Sunday) a bill initiated by MK Shelly Yechimovich (Labor) which would ban private (medical) practice in public hospitals.

In a further clarification of the bill submitted, it was explained that surgeries paid for privately at public hospitals would totally cancel out the principals of the national health plans, which are supposed to guarantee a just equality in aid to the entire public.
