Access Bank, Hygeia partner to make fertility treatments more accessible
This is evidenced in its recent partnership with Hygeia Health Maintenance Organisation (HMO) to amplify access to In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) treatments with 30 per cent cash-back on unsuccessful procedures.
This partnership is supported by the Access Bank’s “W” Initiative flagship product – Maternal Health Service Support (MHSS) designed to help families overcome financial challenges and support them in their quest for parenthood and healthcare.
MHSS is a financing scheme which supports local and international treatments including fertility treatments, natal support, and other specialized procedures such as hysterectomy (uterus removal), myomectomy (fibroid removal), dental, bariatric, orthopedic treatments and so on.
Executive Director, Personal Banking Division of Access Bank Plc, Victor Etuokwu, said: “Access Bank has a focus on women and has developed value propositions that cater to their financial and lifestyle needs. Through the Maternal Health Service Support, we have helped scores of women complete their families and access quality healthcare by financing medical and fertility treatments amongst others.”
Head of Business Development and Strategy at Hygeia HMO, Obinna Ukachukwu, said: “Hygeia is a health insurance company that is involved in improving health care in Nigeria and Africa by deploying global best practices. It is not just an HMO but a healthcare solutions provider that identifies unique healthcare problems in Nigeria and develop solutions to solve them.”
The financing provided by Access Bank under this partnership will cover post investigation, technical fees, drugs, donor eggs and donor sperm cells as required in each case.
To be a beneficiary of this partnership, interested customers can send a request to Access Bank via email@example.com or Hygeia HMO through firstname.lastname@example.org.
As the first of its kind in Nigeria, Access Bank is leading the way in providing thoughtful financial services to women and their families.
