Discovery Gap Cover – Mind the Gap, Please!

December 9, 2021

Why should get Discovery gap cover? Here’s a story.

It was three years ago that Angelina Jolie announced she’d had a preventative mastectomy. That was after genetic testing revealed she carried a gene that made her predisposed to breast cancer. Her decision was a progressive one, and it may have saved her life. She had lost both her mother and grandmother to cancer.

Talking to the public about her decision was a step forward for breast cancer awareness in general. Jolie also highlighted the power of advanced genomic sequencing. That could have a life-changing impact on the health of many but isn’t always accessible due to the cost. Fortunately, if you take out Discovery Life Supplementary Gap Cover, it’s something you can receive access to.

The benefit pays out a tax-free lump sum of up to R500 000 on the diagnosis of specific cancers and other illnesses associated with high treatment costs and covers you for future unrelated conditions subject to an overall maximum payment of R1 000 000 per insured person.
