Contact Discovery About Medical Gap Cover

Gap cover pays the shortfall between what your medical scheme will pay and what a medical specialist charges. This gap cover which Discovery offers, is an insurance product. So it doesn’t fall under the regulations of the Medical Schemes Act. It falls under the regulations of the Short-Term Insurance Act.
