16,000 pensioners and operatives of the State Security Network in Edo State are to benefit from the state government’s free health insurance scheme.

The Director General, Edo State Health Insurance Scheme (EDOHIS), Rock Amegor, who disclosed this, said N1 billion had been earmarked for the free health insurance coverage.

“Over 12,000 pensioners across the 18 local governments, 4,000 operatives of the Edo State Security Network and others are to benefit from the free health insurance coverage”.

He said the initiative will commence in the first quarter of 2024, saying Edo is the second state to provide healthcare coverage for pensioners.

He explained that the free health insurance scheme for the beneficiaries would cover medical care, eye, dental, surgical care as well as physiotherapy.

Amegor also disclosed that over 200,000 from the formal and informal sectors had been enrolled in the state health bí scheme.

According to him, the initiative will mitigate out-of-pocket spending for the beneficiaries and facilitate the attainment of universal health coverage for all residents in the state.

“It is a robust medical care that can take care of about 70 per cent to 80 per cent of all medical challenges that we should expect at one point in our lives.

“Today, we have about 302 facilities in the scheme which will cover the pensioners and vigilante members across the state,” he said.
