‘Access, affordability can improve coverage of medical services’
Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Hygeia Health Management Organisation (HMO), Obinna Abajue, has harped on the need to improve access to healthcare.
According to him, this can change the narratives surrounding the healthcare space of the country.Abajue said Hygeia has made it a goal to continue providing affordable access to quality healthcare and also to contribute positively to the Nigerian healthcare sector.
He disclosed Hygeia has formed a strategic partnership with PiPiT Global and Sochitel which would enable Nigerians living and working in the United Kingdom to buy Hygeia HMO healthcare plans for their parents in Nigeria and pay for these plans with cash at any United Kingdom (UK) Post Office.
The CEO continued: “This new service gives Nigerians living in the UK another simple and affordable way to take care of their family back home without the need to remit cash home to do so. With a Hygeia Senior healthcare plan, if a medical emergency happens, they will have some peace of mind that hospital care will be provided and medical bills paid.”
Abajue noted that research shows that there is a lot of demand for Nigerians in diasporas are looking for affordable and reliable ways to take care of their loved ones and the partnership makes it easier for them to do it.
He added that, Nigerians abroad can now simply visit the Hygeia HMO website and select their preferred plan by completing a simple online form and will be issued with a payment order form by email or SMS.
