Profmed provides unlimited benefits for hospitalisation, but the tariffs charged by some surgeons, anaesthetists and other specialists may be higher than the tariffs covered by Profmed.

This results in shortfalls that can be costly.

Medical expense shortfalls can range from R37 000 for a caesarean section childbirth up to R100 000 for shoulder surgery, cancer treatment and heart surgery.
