The National Health Insurance Scheme, NHIS will soon commence the process of Accreditation/ Re- Accreditation  of Consortiums of Underwriters  and Insurance brokers.
The core objectives of these Consortiums is to provide insurance protection and surety for huge funds released by the Scheme to other Stakeholders and also to ensure that the financial risk is well spread amongst Underwriters.
Companies that have indicated interest will be issued application forms.
To this end, staff of the Scheme will undertake a physical visit to their various head offices to assess their capacity to carry the Scheme’s high portfolio risk .
Assessment will be done based on the documents presented by these companies and parameters as stated in the operational guidelines.
Letters and Forms have already been sent to interested Insurance Companies and Brokers to prepare them for the exercise.
