Super cover plus benefits

    Sometimes accidents occur and you need to rush to casualty.


  • Your medical aid does not always cover the total costs in full. Whether payment comes from your medical scheme savings account or day-to-day benefit, the gap will be covered, provided it is for an ACCIDENT, and the treatment provided is at a casualty unit linked to a hospital.
  • Sometimes, your medical aid will not account for anything regarding this casualty visit, leaving you to cover the bill in full.
  • This benefit will cover you for up to R10 000 per policy per annum (subject to the annual limit*) EVEN IF YOUR MEDICAL AID COVERS NOTHING.
  • Children under the age of 8 ONLY - May be admitted for any treatment at a casualty unit linked to a hospital between the hours of 7 pm to 7 am from Monday to Friday, from 7 pm on a Friday until 7 am on a Monday, and all day on a public holiday

These days most medical aid schemes impose a sub-limit on in-hospital internal prostheses costs. Members may be out of pocket and will have to cover these costs themselves.

  • This benefit will provide for your gap cover premiums for a period of 6 months after the death of the original policyholder.

Where a global fee has been negotiated between a medical aid and service providers for a specific procedure (which includes ALL costs related to that procedure) and service providers charge amounts in excess of this global fee (not related to a tariff rate, co-payment or sub-limit).
