Cura Gap Cover

December 14, 2021

Cura gap cover comes from Hollard insurance. It’s the ideal short term insurance to help with hospital cover and other health care needs not covered by your medical scheme. But I have full cover from my plan, you’re thinking right now.

Yes, you may think you have 100% cover but there are always extras creeping into any hospital stay – there could be complications and you end up staying another week. There will be charges for extra consumables.

What if you need medical and surgical procedures during your hospital stay or outpatient treatment after surgery? Your gap cover plan takes care of all this.
