A specific Travel Insurance, 100% compliant with the Schengen requirements is mandatory for your visa application under the European Union regulation - Decision 810/2009 of 13 July 2009.
If the Travel Insurance does not comply with Schengen requirements, this may be grounds for a visa refusal.
You are free to choose your Insurance and Insurer subject to your country's laws/regulators: https://www.fsca.co.za/Pages/Default.aspx and https://www.resbank.co.za/
Pay attention to fake Schengen Travel Insurance, fake approved websites, and any street sellers.
