Invest in GapCover to optimise your medical scheme membership
Medical scheme membership does not mean you will not have out-of-pocket medical expenses.
Because doctors and other medical service providers can charge up to 500% of the medical scheme tariff, shortfall (gap) amounts often occur after an in-hospital procedure.
Medical schemes can also impose co-payments on in- and out-of-hospital procedures, which are defined and specified by the scheme itself. This will also be an out-of-pocket expense for the member.
It is therefore wise to invest in gap and copay cover policies to cover yourself against these unplanned expenses that could lead to unplanned payments that would be for your own account.
