MoonGate Insurance Ltd and its trading partner Medical Air Services Association [MASA] both announced increased benefits to the Bermuda resident population.
A spokesperson said, “MoonGate, which was established in October, 2013, offers the HealthGap Supplement which is designed to work in conjunction with basic insurance policies, such as HIP and FutureCare.

MoonGate President & CEO, Leon L. Bascome said, “We currently have an extensive array of both local and overseas vendors and partners who work with our clientele to ensure that they receive as much off their co-pay, as they can provide.
“I would like to acknowledge and thank all those who currently comprise of HealthGap, as they have been instrumental in its relevance and growth.
“Today, we are excited to specifically announce and welcome our latest additions to our offering; they are: Argus Optical [Dr. Jamie Burgess, Optometrist], Ashlan Clinic – Healing Essentials [Mel Dupres and Glenn Robinson]; Complete Care Clinic – [Dr. Cindy Morris, MD]; Brunswick Dental Ltd [Dentistry]; BN Henagulph & Associates Ltd [Podiatry] and Amis Memorial Chapel [Funeral Home].

Mr. Bascome added, “We are also pleased to announce that we are placing a price-freeze on HealthGap for 3 years, effective April 1, 2017; we have listened to our clients and have agreed to guarantee the price through to 2020.
“We have always pledged to keep HealthGap affordable and under the $100.00 per month price-point; we continue to achieve this and will continue to increase benefits to this form of HealthGap at no further costs to our clients”

“The extensive discount program is operative in the following participating countries: St. Kitts & Nevis, Anguilla, U.S. Virgin Islands, Bahamas, Turk & Caicos, Trinidad & Tobago and the British Virgin Islands. We hope that members take advantage of these benefits, as its use enables the membership to pay for itself.”
