What is Gap Cover?

Gap Cover, also known as “medical gap” is any expense to your own pocket that your medical aid doesn’t cover during your stay in hospital – this includes the difference between the total fee charged by the doctor and your medical aid.

Why do I need Gap Cover?

Your medical aid’s best friend: Gap Cover is something you should seriously consider, as most medical aid’s often only cover a portion of any procedure that you may have. Emergency or not, the amount covered is at the doctor, hospital, or clinic’s discretion.

When should I consider getting Gap Cover?

Without your health, you have nothing. Accidents happen and emergencies can occur at any time, especially when you least expect it. If your medical aid only covers a portion of certain procedures, this is when gap cover is needed most.

Here is just an example of how Gap Cover can help you when your medical aid falls short:
