Private medical practitioners may charge considerably more than what your medical aid plan provides for. This then creates a shortfall or “gap” between what your medical aid pays and the rates the treating medical practitioner charges. Gap cover is a medical short-term insurance product designed to cover these shortfalls incurred in and out of hospital. Without gap cover, you would be personally liable to pay the difference in rates.
Gap cover is not a substitute for your medical aid; it’s simply a supplementary product that helps you and your loved ones cover your medical expense shortfalls.
