NYSC: Corps members to be added to NHIS

This was stated by NYSC Director of Press, Mrs. Bose Aderibigbe, in a statement released on Friday. She said the Executive Secretary of NHIS, Prof. Usman Yusuf, disclosed this when he visited NYSC Director-General, Brig.-Gen. Sule Kazaure. According to the statement, the decision was in compliance with a Presidential directive to NHIS authorities.

NHIS staff will be expected to visit orientation camps, to capture biometric data of corps members.

“As the corps members get posted to places of primary assignment, the NHIS would assign each of them to a hospital where they will be getting treatment in the event of illness.We have made a proposal to the government to enable it make direct payment to hospitals that will render healthcare services to corps members instead of doing so through Health Maintenance Organisations (HMOs). “This will avoid hitches often occasioned by the failure of some HMOs to make appropriate payments to hospitals,” Yusuf was quoted as saying.

NYSC released call-up letters for the 2016 Batch B Stream 2 this week .
