Westnat Gap Cover Also Known as Western


About Gap Cover

Westnat gap cover is an insurance product that offers coverage when medical aid does not cover the full cost of treatment, surgery, or hospital procedure. Westnat gap cover pays the difference between what your medical scheme can cover, and the higher cost of treatments charged. In other words, when you are charged a fee above your medical aid rate, gap cover takes over.

Westnat Gap Cover also called Western

Westnat Gapcover plan is an affordable insurance product that offers coverage for your entire family. This Westnat offer covers medical expense shortfalls for in-hospital treatment and procedure.

Once is good, twice is better

Westnat also offers a unique plan called “combined cover”. This cover combines the Gapcover plan with Copay plan to give you an all-round packaged policy.

With this cover, you get the Western gap cover for your family medical expense shortfalls for in-hospital treatment and procedure. Then included is a Copay Cover that provides coverage for procedures or treatments not covered by your medical aid that you must pay from your pocket.

However, with combined cover, with Westnat you are covered for both in-patient and out-patient procedure at an affordable cost.
