Short Term Healthcare cover is only provided in the event of a medical emergency. By this we mean an accident, a disaster or any sudden beginning or worsening of a severe illness, resulting in a medical condition that presents an immediate health threat and therefore requires urgent medical measures. Only medical treatment by a physician, medical practitioner/specialist or hospitalisation that commences within 24 hours of the emergency event will be covered.
Please note that the purpose of this insurance plan is to provide medical care during emergency situations. Any ongoing or further treatment that is required after the emergency situation is not covered by this policy.
