Nigeria government starts health insurance for corpers

The Federal Government has commenced modalities for the compulsory enrolment of all serving members of the National Youth Service Corps on the National Health Insurance Scheme.

The decision was aimed at providing all corps members with unhindered access to better health care.

The Executive Secretary of the NHIS, Prof. Usman Yusuf, unveiled the plan during a meeting with the Director-General of NYSC, Brig-General Suleiman Kazaure, in Abuja on Friday.

He explained that the idea to enrol corps members on the NHIS was influencd by the death of the Osun State-born Ifedolapo Oladepo, a corps member of the 2016 Batch ‘B’, who developed health challenges and died at the NYSC orientation camp in Kano.

According to him, President Muhammadu Buhari had “requested the Ministry of Health to forward a memo to be presented to the Federal Executive Council on how corps members could be adequately covered in the NHIS scheme.”
