‘HMOs are Critical to Success of Health Insurance’

Martins Ifijeh
The Chairman, Health and Managed Care Association of Nigeria (HMCAN), Dr. Babatunde Ladapo has stated that the role of Health Management Organisations (HMO) is very important and critical to the success of the National Health Insurance Scheme in Nigeria.

He said when HMOs are provided with the enabling environment by the Federal Ministry of Health and NHIS management to perform its statutory role in the provision of healthcare insurance in the country, the present stagnation in the scheme will be a thing of the past.

Stating this during the HMCAN-Media Engagement in Lagos recently, he said, “every problem we have in NHIS in the setting of the scheme is failure of regulation. The regulator wants to be the operators, they want to register HMO, they want to register enrollees, but the law did not state that.
