percent. Ministry of Health, Summary of Patients Transfer in Psychiatric Hospitals and Psychiatric Wards, February 1990.
2.
The lion's share of these medical units for mental health (36) is owned by the state; 20 are operated by Kupat Holim, and a further 20 are distributed between other health insurance schemes, the IDF, and others. Information was provided by Miriam Popper, a senior official in the Ministry of Health.
3.
This information was derived from a memorandum sent to the Judicial Committee by Dr. Michael Schneidman, November 27, 1988.
4.
Some qualifications are in order. First, Kupat Holim finances mental hospitalization in its own hospitals for a period of up to two years; second, hospitalization in general hospitals' mental wards is financed by sick funds. In a case where the health insurance plan refuses to pay the cost, the patient is transferred to a state psychiatric hospital.
5.
Levy and Davidson ( 1986, p. 150) reported that this step was brought to the psychiatrists by the health minister during a congress of psychiatry and law and through the media. No circulars or other information were provided at all.
6.
In 1990 the patients' rights document still specified that appeals should be presented through the head of the psychiatric services in the Ministry of Health, although this position had been abolished two years before.
