How does gap cover work?
Good question! Fortunately the answer is simple. Gap cover is a short-term insurance which covers medical aid shortfalls, otherwise known as co-payments. By having a gap cover policy you avoid ever having to make out-of-pocket payments for health care ever again.
Is gap cover popular?
Yes, and it’s obvious why. If you should have to go to hospital for an operation, in South Africa today this could cost of hundreds of thousands of rand. And in most cases (with a few exceptions for those who have extremely expensive, top-level medical aid) the medical aid will NOT pay the full bill. The balance is for the medical aid member to pay, using a loan, savings or even mortgaging their homes.
Clearly, having gap cover is a better option.
