Why do I need Gap Cover?
Most people purchase medical aid and assume that all of their medical bills will be taken care of. Unfortunately, this is not always true. If you need medical care for any reason- be it through accident or illness- medical shortfalls can occur. You don't want to add financial worry to the stress of being hospitalised. This is why you need Gap Cover. Gap Cover ensures that you don't receive a huge bill if there's a shortfall between what the doctors charge and what your medical aid will pay for in- hospital procedures.
