Medway Gap Cover
January 23, 2015
Medway gap cover is a leader in medical aid cover. Established in 1990, Medway medical aid continues to look for ways to enhance the value of their products.
While you might think that your medical aid has you completely covered for
in-hospital stays, think again.
Medical aid schemes pay up to 100% of the costs for a hospital stay. Practitioners and specialists, though, can charge as much as 200 – 500 percent. And guess who has to pay for that shortfall. You.
Medway gap cover is the perfect solution. Gap cover supplements your current health cover ensuring you’re not left high and dry financially.

About Medway Gap Cover and How it Becomes an Essential part of Your Medical Aid Plan
Medway gap cover covers as much as 500% of your scheme rate.
Let’s say you have your tonsils taken out. The medical aid scheme will pay R1 200 for the anaesthetist. But the anaesthetist charges a lot more than that. Medway will cover that shortfall up to R6000.
Medway cover also covers some treatments and medical procedures. Certain
co-payments will be covered too. But it depends on which policy you choose.
South Africa has some seriously affordable medical aid schemes but is a policy enough when it comes to in-hospital procedures? Usually not.
If you belong to either Liberty medical aid, Bonitas, GEMS, Discovery, Fedhealth, Momentum or any other scheme in the country, you qualify for Medway cover.
How Much Cover Do You Get with Medway?
Medway gap cover offers R2 000 000 per family, per year.
The Medway gap cover options are designed to supplement your medical aid policy. Cover starts from R135 per month, per family. If you’re under 65 years of age and currently have a medical aid policy, you can apply for Medway cover.
