NHIS Executive Secretary, Yusuf Speaks On Scheme’s Achievements [Audio]
Health they say is wealth, perhaps this prompted the Federal government to set up the National Insurance scheme NHIS to provide easy ,affordable and efficient healthcare for all Nigerians with financial barriers removed for unlimited acess to healthcare
NHIS is to provide social health insurance in Nigeria where health care services of contributors are paid from the common pool of funds contributed by the participants of the Scheme.
It is a pre-payment plan where participants pay a fixed regular amount. The amount/funds are pooled, allowing the Health Maintenance Organisations(HMOs) to pay for those needing medical attention. It is primarily a risk sharing arrangement which can improve resource mobilisation and equity. It is indeed regarded as the most widely used form of health care financing worldwide.
In an interview with Radio Nigeria, Executive Secretary NHIS, Professor, Usman Yusuf explains how the scheme has fared and its achievements under the present administration .
