Medcare is a product from Medway, which is a group of healthcare advisors that came into being in 1990. Through liaising with different companies who either provide medical cover or other types of insurance, they came up with a product that caters for members of schemes who need the extra cover.The insurance products one would find at Medway, cannot be found with any other insurer. They have expert advisors who tailor their products after much consideration of current market conditions. The cover on this product is up five times the scheme rate. For instance, the anaesthetic bills you R3000, and your medical aid only pays R1200. Then Medcare covers this difference of R1800. Further, Medcare pays the difference up to R6000, depending on the cover you take out.
