How to get medical help within MSHI once you get ill in another city


In fact, all 18 million citizens are attached. However, many are, thanks to God, healthy, who do not either go, or use. Nevertheless, money is financed and in case of necessity you can get any type of help at the place of residence. But during travel, it is certain that in case of emergency situation, the help can be received in any part of Kazakhstan. There is no problem, it means if you call to an ambulance you will get medical help, because it has nothing to do with the insurance. In fact, this system has always been efficient. All types of medical help will be provided within that system, the Minister said.
