Welcome Note from Acting Executive Secretary

I am pleased to welcome you to the official website of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS). The Scheme established under Act 35 of 1999 by the Federal Government of Nigeria, is aimed at providing easy access to healthcare for all Nigerians at an affordable cost through various prepayment systems.

NHIS is totally committed to securing universal coverage and access to adequate and affordable healthcare in order to improve the health status of Nigerians, especially for those participating in the various programmes/products of the Scheme.


Benefit Package

The contributions paid cover healthcare benefits for the employee, a spouse and four (4) biological children below the age of 18 years. More dependants or a child above the age of 18 would be covered on the payment of additional contributions from the principal beneficiary. However children above 18 years who are in tertiary institution will be covered under Tertiary Insurance Scheme.



In accordance with the perspectives of the management of NHIS on building a new Scheme that is responsive and responsible, the organization engaged the services of PricewaterhouseCoopers Limited (PwC) for a fair and credible assessment of the strength and potentials of its accredited HMOs.

The following are the Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs) accredited by NHIS to provide services under the Scheme.Read more
