What is the No Gaps Scheme?

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

Medical gaps

Most health funds have gap cover Doctor’s agreements made with particular Doctors that may cover all or some of the Doctors fees for your hospital treatment. If your fund does not have an agreement with your doctor you may have to contribute towards the Doctor’s bill out of your own pocket.

The Government does not set doctors’ fees and the Doctor is free to decide on a case-by-case basis whether he or she wishes to use an insurer’s gap cover arrangement.

Are you having trouble finding a Specialist that participates in the “No Gap” scheme ?
