State Supported Health Insurance Program (SSHIP)

It has become obvious that to achieve the Universal Health Coverage in Nigeria, the State Governments must be encouraged to run State Supported Health Insurance Schemes. With establishments of State Agencies of Health Insurance, control at the national level will be decentralised and the scheme will be closer to the people in rural communities, local government councils and state civil service.

PreciousHMO provides technical support to State Governments towards a successful establishment of a State Based Health Insurance Scheme, its implementation, which involves Policy and Regulation, Provider Management, Enrolment, Revenue Collection and Pooling, Fund Holding and Fund Management, Communications/Marketing, Monitoring and Information Systems, Recruitment, Contracting and Purchase of Health Services from Health Care Providers.
