Medical gap cover helps to pay hospital bills that aren’t fully covered by your medical aid in South Africa. It’s not a medical aid, but rather insurance that covers you in the event that your medical aid doesn’t cover all your costs. Medical service providers, like doctors, can charge an average of 5 times (or 500%) the medical aid rate, leaving you to pay the difference, out of pocket. They may also request certain procedures and scopes, such as MRI’s and gastroscopies, which would require a co-payment.

Rockfin Gap Cover not only covers shortfalls or gaps for medical practitioners in the event of hospitalisation involving surgery or medical treatment, but also certain procedures performed out-of-hospital. For more information, or to join, please speak to your Rockfin Gap Cover accredited adviser.
