The CompliMed® Story
Successfully covering shortfalls since 2003
Since the early 2000's the name CompliMed® has become synonymous with Gap Cover in South Africa. Starting off as an original product provider, we distributed our range of Gap Cover products through health-care providers country-wide.
With a background in financial management the CompliMed® founders identified a need for effective wide-spread Gap Cover policy distribution. Having seen the stress and negative impact medical scheme shortfalls had on their clients, they set out to challenge the existing industry through a set of new products that provided comprehensive cover at a reasonable rate to as many people as possible.
Our value-proposition was simple and effective: we offered quality, value-driven products at affordable prices ...for the Gap in your medical aid! With the added benefit of being able to administer our own policies we were able to offer our brokers and their clients exceptional after-sales service that was hard to challenge by any of our competitors.
As the market became more aware of how necessary Gap Cover was we grew from strength to strength nationwide, and saw particular success in the KwaZulu-Natal area.
A lot has changed since then, and in 2013 an operational change marked our withdrawal from policy administration. By 2016 CompliMed® was no longer involved with it's original client-base, and took time to consolidate and explore new opportunities. Fast-forward to 2018 and we are now launching in a new direction - offering our own brand of Gap Cover products to clients, available to sign-up for and claim from online.
The original CompliMed® philosophy and passion remains - offering good quality Gap Cover products at affordable prices, now with the added convenience of online accessibility and availability.
CompliMed® ...for the GAP in your medical aid!

In 2006 Brett and Peter took over the entity, changed the name to CompliMed® and moved to new premises in Pinetown where the business ran successfully for many years.
Brett is married to Kerry and they have 2 boys. Brett is a keen golfer, and when time allows, you might find him on the fairways, or bush, of one of the golf courses along the KZN North Coast.
