Cover for hospitalisation shortfalls include gap cover, co-payment cover and cover for the voluntary use of non-designated service providers for prescribed minimum benefit conditions (except in the event of an emergency). Out-of-hospital benefits include cover for the shortfalls resulting from the difference between what medical schemes pay and what day-to-day specialist doctors charge, for appliances and for emergency room treatment as a result of accidents and emergency illness.
The stated benefit amount payable is not related to the specific cost of any medical expense shortfall or non-medical expense cover as a result of hospitalisation. Our first priority is to provide our policyholders with the peace of mind to focus on recovery and recuperation, which is why we do our underwriting at application, rather than claims stage. We also pride ourselves on effective turn-around times — in order to achieve this, Sirago have weekly pay runs.
Our core business revolves around the provision of critical benefits to policyholders who are faced with unforeseen medical expense shortfalls, which are not fully covered by their medical schemes.

What’s going on in the world of Gap Cover Insurance.
Here are the answers to your questions
Gap Cover is the invaluable safety net that covers the shortfall between what medical schemes pay and what specialist doctors charge. Without this, policyholders may find themselves paying for unexpected costs from their own pockets.
We cover policyholders and beneficiaries of all ages. The benchmark for premium determination is based on whether you join as an individual, or as a family, and the prospective policyholder’s age at the inception of the policy according to the following three age bands:
• 54 years and younger,
• 55 years to 64 years, and
• 65 years or older.
