Lagos Begins Compulsory Health Insurance Scheme For Residents

The state Commissioner for Health, Dr Jide Idris, said hat the scheme was compulsory for every resident in the state and therefore urged the residents to subscribe. According to him, public servants in the state will pay 25 per cent of their contributions, while the government pays 75 per cent.


“Before now, we have always run free health services for health workers and members of the public. “But we realise that nothing is free; we do not have the amount of money required to run free health services.

“We require about N8 billion every year to be able to sustain it. We do not have that kind of money. “That is why at a stage everybody must contribute,’’ he said. Idris said that the government could not fund the health sector alone due to limited resources.

According to him, the government, under the health insurance scheme, will partner with the private sector to provide healthcare services to the people.

Laudable, if the government can make it happen. Ghana has a national insurance scheme and it's working.
