Admed gap cover gives wings to medical aid members in SA

What the medical scheme agrees to pay and what the medical specialist bills you are two different things. If you have never heard of medical gap cover, your first medical bill from treatment in-hospital will alert you to find out about the importance of gap cover.

These shortfall amounts that the medical aid won’t pay, will be your responsibility and they can sink you financially.

Gap cover can save you from bankruptcy

With the amount of medical debt you have, you may be tempted to take on even more credit to pay for your bills. Doing this just tightens the noose around your neck. Instead, rather look at gap cover as a realistic way to pay for your medical debt.

Nobody wants to file for bankruptcy, but without gap cover, it will be hard to avoid. It is why Admed gap cover gives wings to medical aid members in South Africa.

Admed is a division of Guardrisk Insurance Company. Their gap cover insurance will take care of the difference that comes about from the rate that specialists charge for in-hospital procedures – often 500% or more higher than the rate paid by your medical scheme.

Don’t pay co-payments and go without treatment

These shortfalls occur because of doctors charging more than the contracted rate with your medical scheme. It also comes about because your medical scheme applies co-payments on certain in-hospital procedures.

If you don’t have the co-payment amount available, then you simply can’t have the treatment you so badly need.  Also, there are certain in-hospital appliances that have sub-limits. Gap Cover is just for these in-hospital treatments and doesn’t cover day-to-day medical expenses.
