Co-payments Charged as a Percentage

If your medical scheme defines your co-payment as a percentage of the benefit, your co-payment benefit will be limited to a maximum payment of R13 000 per claim.

Penalty Fee Cover

Out-of-hospital Benefits

Emergency Room Cover

A sub-limit of R7 000 is applicable. This benefit covers an emergency at any registered emergency facility when you require immediate medical treatment due to an accident or illness. The following benefits collectively accumulate to the sub-limit. Accident benefit: all costs related to the accidental event will be covered and paid to a maximum value of the sub-limit available, whether you are liable to pay the costs related to the emergency event out of your own pocket or if your medical scheme pays from your savings account. Illness benefit: when you visit an emergency room in a medical emergency as a result of illness, we will cover the Gap portion only if the medical scheme has paid a portion.

This benefit covers you for, but is not limited to; dread disease, hijacking and/or violent crimes. (At the discretion of the insurer, on the provision of supporting documentation.)

Cancer Benefits

Cancer Co-payment Benefit

This Cancer Co-payment Benefit is applied once your medical scheme cancer benefit has been reached and a percentage co-payment is imposed. This benefit incorporates co-payments, and co-payments related to biological drugs. In order to access this benefit, you need to be on a registered treatment plan with your medical scheme.

Cancer Benefit – Boost

The Cancer Boost benefit is limited to R50 000 per beneficiary per annum. This benefit is restricted to policyholders where their medical scheme option has a defined rand limit for cancer treatment. The Cancer Boost benefit can only be claimed once your rand limit on your medical scheme cancer benefit has been reached and you require ongoing treatment. This benefit is dependent upon the insured having already been registered on the medical scheme’s cancer programme. The Cancer Boost benefits are limited to those that were determined within the approved medical scheme treatment plan which must be submitted to Sirago upon application for this benefit.

Cancer Benefit – Breast Reconstruction

In the event of the medical scheme approving reconstructive surgery on the
affected breast, we will cover the Gap portion up to 200% of the claim. In addition to this, Sirago will make available up to R16 000 for the reconstruction of the non-affected breast. This benefit is available within the first 12 (twelve) months of the initial mastectomy. We require, subject to Sirago protocols,
which include, but are not limited to: medical scheme pre-authorisation and a
motivation/letter from your treating provider.

Cancer Benefit – PMB

Please note the above benefits are only available in the event that the treatments do not form part of the legislative PMB framework.

Value Added Benefits

Gap Cover Premium Waiver

In event of death or total permanent disability of the policyholder of the Sirago policy. The Premium Waiver is directly linked to your policy premium per month as indicated in your schedule of insurance. This benefit is not paid in cash, but held as a credit against the policy for the applicable 12 month period. Should there be any premium adjustments within the 12 month period, the credit balance available for the rest of the waiver period, will be adjusted accordingly. This benefit cannot be transferred, ceded or converted to cash.

Medical Scheme Premium Waiver

Payable in event of death or total permanent disability of the policyholder of the Sirago Gap Cover. In the event of dual medical scheme membership, this benefit is only payable in event of death or total permanent disability of the principal policyholder. Sirago will pay the medical scheme premium to the actual amount of the contribution, but not higher than the sub-limit of R3 250 per month for a 6-month period, which will be paid to the beneficiary for the upkeep of their medical scheme contributions. In order to receive the benefit, the Gap Cover policy and medical scheme membership must remain active during this period. A certificate of membership from your medical scheme must be presented monthly for authentication of current membership.

Accidental Death

R8 000 principal, R5 000 adult dependent, R3 000 per child per policy per life.

Cancer Cover (Initial Diagnosis)

This benefit will pay you a lump sum of R14 000 upon the initial diagnosis of malignant cancer per beneficiary per annum as defined. This excludes any incidence of cancer/pre-cancer prior to inception of the policy.
