Complimed Medical Shortfall Cover Explained

    December 14, 2016

    Complimed medical shortfall cover could provide the solution for clients whose medical schemes do not offer comprehensive Medical Savings Accounts.

    Gap Cover ensures payment of unexpected additional medical costs such as specialist fees, blood tests and hospital treatments.

    So for a small monthly premium, Complimed medical shortfall cover pays the difference between the final amount charged by experts for hospital services and the fees covered by medical schemes.

    Complimed Medical Shortfall CoverWhile Gap policies from other companies may only pay market rates and specific amounts charged by professionals, Complimed offers full protection but requires members to either use medical practitioners registered with the enterprise or to persuade their doctors to register with the scheme.
