Picked to Run NYSC Health
Insurance Scheme.

LifeWorth HMO, a leading health maintenance Organization alongside five  other hmos was selected to drive the implementation of the enrolment of  corps members into the National Health Insurance Scheme under the NYSC  Group Individual Family Social Health Insurance Programme. 

The National Youth Service Corps in 2021 unveiled the health initiative which had been designed as a holistic health insurance scheme, covering the  periods of pre-orientation, which means as soon as a Prospective Corps  Member picks up Call-up Letter, which is the instrument that qualifies  him/her for admittance into National Service, until the end of his/her  terminal leave, which is three weeks after disengagement from Service. 

The NYSC urged corps members to register under Health Care Practitioners  in their localities. 

The Director-General of the NYSC, Major General Shuaibu Ibrahim, during  the event, said the health scheme was the culmination of the Presidential  directive issued in 2016, which arose as a result of the unfortunate deaths of  three corps members deployed to Kano, Zamfara and Bayelsa states  orientation camps. 

He said the loss of any corps member as it were, provokes sadness in the  NYSC, saying it leaves the scheme “highly diminished”. 

Maj. Gen Ibrahim said, “The issue of a robust and sustainable health care  system for corps members has always been of paramount importance to  successive management of the scheme. 

“The unveiling is the culmination of the Presidential directive issued in 2016,  which arose as a result of the unfortunate deaths of three Corps Members deployed to Kano, Zamfara and Bayelsa States Orientation Camps. The loss of any corps member as it were, provokes sadness in us, leaving the scheme  highly diminished. 

“Corps members, who represent the most critical part of our demography – the youths, are the leaders and builders of tomorrow. Consequently, any  government policy aimed at uplifting this group is akin to building the future  of our dear country, Nigeria. It is particularly fulfilling that the enrolment of  corps members into the Health Insurance Scheme is in line with the policy  thrust of my Administration bordering on the improvement of welfare and  security of corps members and Staff. 

Speaking after the announcement, the CEO of LIFEWORTH HMO, Dr.  Raymond Osho assured Corps members and general public on his readiness  to provide exceptional service. According to Dr Osho, “Affordable healthcare  must deliver on its mandate which includes accessibility, responsiveness and  quality. This will in turn give the enrollees the best of services from the HMO  which is delivered by the Healthcare Providers. This is the way through which  the enrollees can trust the system, as a whole, and gaining this trust is what  we aim at.”
