“For effective implementation of this scheme, six (6) Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOS) have been carefully selected after a competitive process for each of the six geopolitical zones to drive the process.

“To ensure a seamless arrangement devoid of encumbrances, corps members are expected to register under Health Care Practitioners in their localities. It is therefore my expectation that both the HMOs and Health Care Providers will approach this insurance scheme with the highest degree of responsibility and integrity.

“On our part, Management of the NYSC will leave no stone unturned in order to ensure that all, who have roles to play in this initiative, carry them out with patriotic zeal so as to meet the expectations of the Government. In a bid to further achieve this, I have directed the Corps Welfare and Health Services Department of the Scheme to ensure strict monitoring of the HMOs in concert with the NHIS Office to guard against service failure,”.

The Executive Secretary of HHIS, Prof. Mohammed Nasir Gambo, who was also present in the event, described the initiative as a bold step in the right direction as it will contribute significantly to the wellbeing and welfare of youths, who according to him, are the future leaders of the country.
