51,000 residents enrol in Nasarawa Health Insurance Scheme

About 51,000 residents of Nasarawa State comprising orphans, almajiri children and the aged have been enrolled in the State’s Health Insurance Scheme.

Executive Secretary of the Nasarawa State Health Insurance Agency, Dr Gaza Gwamna, made the disclosure while speaking with newsmen on the agency’s programmes in Lafia, the state capital. He explained that the 51,000 vulnerable people who enrolled to benefit from the programme were funded by the Nasarawa State government and some private organizations.

He said: “We enrolled all the orphanages in Nasarawa State. They are in the health insurance scheme which was sponsored by the state government because of the good heart of Governor Abdullahi Sule. We also enrolled almajiri children in the state. As of today, we have enrolled about 51,000 persons but not all of them have had their premium paid. We have some of them whose premium was paid by the federal government while others had theirs paid by the state government and some NGOs.”

Gwamna commended the organized labour in the state for keying into the programme, noting that, as soon as deductions were made from the wages of civil servants and pensioners to fund the programme, they would commence accessing health care services under the agency.

Our correspondent reports that the organized labour in the state had recently agreed that monthly deductions of 3% of workers’ basic salaries and 1% of pensioners’ benefits should commence without delay and be remitted to the agency to enable these categories of persons to access health services under the state health insurance scheme.
