Medical Aid & Gap Cover
Medical aid is health insurance governed by a medical scheme, a legal body created to offset medical expenses of its members. The purpose of the scheme is not to make a profit but to rather pay claims on behalf of its members. There are various types of medical aids and other health products (such as Gap Cover). This is why it is imperative to get assistance from your financial advisor when selecting the most appropriate health and Gap Cover plan. Gap Cover policies are designed to address financial shortfalls between the rates that your medical aid covers and that of what medical specialists charge.
