Cura Gap Cover – Works Together With All South African Medical Plans

Cura gap cover is a product of the well-known and trusted Hollard insurance group. It is the perfect short term cover to insure you against shortfalls in hospital cover, and other health care needs not paid in full by your medical aid. Many people assume that their medical aid will cover all their medical costs, but this is seldom if ever the case.

All plans, including the top of the range medical aid, have limits and exclusions that they do not cover. Therefore, if you have an extended stay in hospital or some procedures, there is a significant chance you will have to pay extra for these costs if you do not have gap cover in place.

When if you need surgical and medical procedures when in hospital or outpatient treatments afterwards, gap cover will cover the shortfall not paid by your medical aid.

This Gap Cover is The Best Cure for any Medical Aid Shortfall!
