Gap Cover from Zestlife – Keeping Compcare Members Covered

December 9, 2021

Gap cover for Compcare is almost like an antibiotic. It treats the symptoms causing you so much stress around those shortfall amounts that need paying. Specialists in South Africa are unregulated, and this means that they can charge what they like. They charge far more than what the medical aid scheme will pay. If you don’t have gap cover, then you’re the one who will have to pay these bills. When you think of heart bypass surgery, the gap amount can add up to thousands upon thousands of Rands. It’s why so many people in South Africa file for bankruptcy – they were caught off-guard without gap cover.
