After decades of attempts, Israel has enacted a national health insurance law and begun to substantially change its health care system. I explore the conditions that enabled final passage of the law in light of theories of nonincremental change in pluralist policy systems. I also discuss the implications of this policy breakthrough for links between policy subsystems, leadership, and the establishment of a new policy equilibrium.
