Trulogic Gap Cover Explained

    April 1, 2019

    Trulogic Gap Cover could be your bridge between being able to afford medical healthcareorfacingthe prospect of bankruptcy.

    This may seem like an overly grim exaggeration but, in reality, South Africa’s medical health landscape is indeed arid with little in the way of an oasis to provide shelter from the financial demands on consumer pockets.

    As a financial services provider, Trulogic is a registered broker with all leading medical aid schemes in South Africa and can offer its clients gap cover tailored to their specific needs. Trulogic has also designed a product range specifically for members of Momentum Medical Aid. One of these is:

    TruGap Gap Cover for Momentum Medical Aid members

    Trulogic Gap Cover TRA

    This gap covers policyholders for up to 500% over-and-above what their Momentum Medical Aid will pay for in-hospital procedures and treatments. It also covers additional charges incurred when members use non-designated service providers such as specialists and private hospitals, as well as a sub-limit for internal prosthesis amounting to R60 000 per family annually.

    Co-payments include:

    • MRI and CT scans (R2 030)
