During the year 2023, the service will gradually expand to all medical centers throughout the country for the convenience of all Maccabi companies and members.

With the digital card, members will be able to consume the best medical services: visits to the various doctors' clinics, laboratory services, office services, nurses' clinics, institutes, the pharmacies of Maccabi Pharm, the "Assuta Medical Centers" chain, the "Macbidnet" chain and the "Maccabi Natural" chain.
