As a result, many patients are at risk of having to pay substantial shortfalls should they need medical attention. However, by taking gap cover with iWYZE you can protect yourself and family from those unexpected shortfalls.

What is gap cover?

Gap cover is not an option offered through medical aid schemes. It is reliable cover offered by insurance companies like iWYZE and is in place to help people who need medical treatment and discover that their medical aid plan will not cover the full amount. Gap cover will help individuals settle the outstanding difference between what the hospitals or specialists are charging and the overall amount that the medical aid will pay.

Fill in the gap with adequate cover

When it comes to in-hospital surgical procedures or medical treatment, as well as out-patient treatment such as renal dialysis, chemotherapy or radiotherapy, the costs incurred can be higher than what you are covered for through your medical aid. However, if your savings are depleted and there is an outstanding amount, gap cover will help you take care of the shortfall.

Don’t be left with a large shortfall

Having to undergo a medical procedure or seek medical attention can be stressful enough without having to worry about settling outstanding accounts afterwards. Gap Cover from Old Mutual iWYZE has been carefully designed to help ensure that you are not left with expensive shortfalls and outstanding payments for medical accounts. Unfortunately, we don’t know what will happen in the future, however, by making sure you have adequate gap cover you can be prepared for those unexpected situations.
