Medical specialist rates are commonly much higher than Medical Aid rates. This also results in an amount (often large) left for the medical aid member to fund out of their own pockets. Fortunately one gap cover policy per family from Zestlife covers the self-payment gap.
Medical aid members often do not understand that the Medical Aids may say they cover 100% of the costs involved but that, in fact, refers to, the 100% of the Medical Scheme Tariff (MST) rates which are much lower than doctors and specialist charges. Zestlife with their experience in the Medical Industry also has become experts in creating “Gap” insurance policies. So read more to find out more about Zestlife’s one gap cover policy per family.
