FG advocates compulsory health insurance scheme

Health Minister, Professor Isaac Adewole, has advocated that the participation of Nigerians in the National Health Insurance Scheme should be made compulsory.

The minister calls for the review of the national health insurance act, which makes participation in the scheme voluntary.

Adewole, speaking in Abuja, explained that the presidency is supporting moves by the National Assembly to repeal the act and replace it with a comprehensive package.

He blames the low participation of Nigerians in the scheme on the provisions of the existing act, which makes participation in the scheme voluntary.
