A new law approved by the Israeli parliament on Monday allows women to have breast enlargments and, in some cases, to wear a small bra.
But women are still banned from having them in public.
The new law allows women, as long as they do not pose a public health risk, to have a breast enhancement without a doctor’s permission, with the understanding that it should be covered by insurance.
Under the new law, breast enhancement procedures can be performed without a physical examination and without a prescription from a physician.
The procedure is covered by the insurance coverage provided by the Health Insurance Plan of Israel, which was launched by the government in March.
A woman can have up to three breast implants, the Health Ministry said in a statement.
It noted that the procedure can be done without a visit to the doctor and without having to undergo surgery.
Under this law, any woman who desires to undergo breast enlarging procedure, which requires no physical examination, can have it done by a doctor.
The doctor must have permission from her to perform the operation, and the procedure is only covered by a monthly insurance plan.
The women who opt for the procedure are exempt from paying for the insurance.
The government also announced plans to extend the coverage of breast enlargment procedures to women who are already covered under the insurance plan of the Health insurance plan, and to extend it to women with no health insurance.
The government said the expansion will allow women to be covered under a health insurance plan covering both breast enhancement and surgery.
The bill, which will be signed into law on Wednesday, comes as Israeli lawmakers continue to debate a controversial law that restricts access to women’s medical care, including in public spaces, and a proposal that would ban women from wearing miniskirts and short skirts in public and from wearing makeup.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called the bill discriminatory and said it violates the human rights of women.
He has also said that his government will fight the law, saying it would “be the biggest attack on women and our nation since World War II.”
A spokeswoman for the Health and Welfare Ministry told The Jerusalem Report that the health insurance policy is not based on gender and that it was a decision taken by the ministry to provide coverage for women with a lower socioeconomic status.
She added that the government plans to expand the coverage to cover more women and is currently looking for a woman with a higher income.
