The National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) has formally launched a new health insurance policy known as the group, individual and family social insurance package.
Speaking during the launch of the insurance scheme in Abuja, the Executive Secretary of NHIS, Prof. Mohammed Sambo, said the move was in keeping with the determination of the federal government to expand the health insurance coverage to accommodate all Nigerians.
Under the new scheme, groups and families can now enjoy special health insurance cover.
He said that as part of efforts to improve its services, the scheme has fully automised its operations through the e-NHIS platform.
According to Sambo, all the information and documentations relating to the NHIS can now be accessed through its website.
