    Thanks Nwasom,
    Yes it must be in group now. It was on the previous VCSHIP plan that it was 15k per person.
    Individual person without any dependent will still pay 45k.

    Thanks for clarifying this.

    If you are the principal and you have 2 of your parents and your wife also has 2 of her parents making it 4 Biological Parents. Yes you are adding 4 Extra Dependents.
    On the formal sector, you are entitled to add your biological parents and your wife biological parents only. No brothers, sisters, cousins etc

    Please what do you mean by formal sector?

    Yes. Private hospitals that have been accredited already. By this, I mean, they have signed an agreement with the NHIS

    Yes NHIS has accredited Private Hospitals across the country that enrollees chose as their primary hospital to access care.
    Any private hospital that wish to attend to enrollees most first apply to NHIS and a team of Medical practitioners in the appropriate Department is sent for accreditation and inspection. If the hospitals meets up all requirements, will be listed and people can chose their as their hospital.

    If I register to say in Delta state and now working in Oyo state, can I still use the nhis to get treatment or do I need to go to Delta state for treatment?

    Yes for the formal sector.

    However, there are HMOs that are only accredited regionally or statewide only and some, nationally.

    Find out the accreditation the HMO has before you venture

    Thanks Nwasom,
    You don’t have to go back to Delta. This is where the HMOs come in. You contact your assigned HMO and they issue you what is called an ‘Out of Station’ code to the proposed hospital you want to use in Oyo State. Provided is an NHIS Accredited Hospital.
    If is a permanent relocation to Oyo, you can just apply for Change of Facility. Then you start using the choice of hospital in Oyo state

    It is always a pleasure.

    Let me also add that the NHIS is driving and trying to enforce the UHC “Universal health coverage”, this will only happen when it becomes mandatory that everyone must be registered into a health scheme.
    Already, it says employers with a certain number of employees must make health insurance available to them….

    Nigeria being Nigeria, we don’t even want to get involved.

    Soon, hopefully, this will be enforced even as we get the vulnerable, communities and everyone on board the scheme.

    Thank you again for the opportunity to raise this awareness.
